L&SE - Open Training - Whitstable

Whitstable Yacht Club

27th April 2024

Whitstable Yacht Club welcomes you to join us for ITCA race coaching. This will be a full day of training delivered by a team of very experienced race coaches led by RYA RTG race coach Charlotte Bonella.  The coaching is open to all and will support both experienced racers and those relatively new to racing. Max number of entries will be 24 so get your entries in early!

The club has changing facilities and hot showers. There is a café on site and a bar in the club for those over 18. Whitstable is a popular seaside town with a multitude of shops, bars, pubs, and restaurants to make your whole stay one to remember. (Following the training day there is a regatta on Sunday 28th, so why not make a weekend of it?)

How to get here

Most visitors should follow the brown signs for the harbour from the A299.

Sat nav location

When using sat nav to reach the club do not use the postal address as the destination. The road that the club is on, the Sea Wall, is small lane leading to a deadend with no suitable access to the beach.

Use Whitstable Harbour on Harbour Street as the destination as this provides access to the beach for dropping off boats. The club is 30 metres from the Harbour entrance, or download these directions.

Car parking

The closest car park is Gorrell Tank, 200 metres east of the harbour.
