The club is located on the South bank of the river Medway at Gillingham Kent where we have a clubhouse and dinghy park at Commodores Hard.
The clubhouse has a bar which is the venue for a variety of social events throughout the year.
It is also the start line for races organised for cruisers and traditional craft.
At the other end of The Strand Leisure park we have a storage yard with a three berth slip, dry dock, workshop and a large boatshed.
Our aim is to provide affordable access to sailing facilities for practical sailors. We encourage members to participate in club events and the maintenance and running of the club to help reduce membership fees.
The Medway Cruising Club’s primary objective is to provide affordable access to facilities that encourage active participation in sailing, racing and motorboat cruising. Members own a wide variety of craft including sailing dinghies, cruising yachts, and motor cruisers.
We also have a strong section whose interests lie in building and restoring traditional craft.
Members own a variety of gaffers, smacks and other wooden craft and a Thames Barge is currently being rebuilt in the dry dock.
We cannot emphasise enough that we encourage “an active membership”. This entails not only participating in club events but also helping with the maintenance and running of the club. This helps keep our membership fees to a minimum and promotes friendship and enjoyment through working together.
