Welcome to Sail Thurrock



Sail Thurrock is an exciting new partnership between Thurrock Yacht Club and Grangewaters Outdoor Education Centre.

Our aim is simple. We want to get Thurrock sailing!

If there is a sport that defines Thurrock it has to be sailing. Everything about our history and geography shouts "maritime". We are spoilt for sheltered and open waters that are the envy of many.

If you have ever dreamed of getting on the water, come and have a go. You don't need to be rich, in fact you don't even need a boat to get sailing. Join us and expand your horizons
