You really do not need to be wealthy to enjoy sailing. Thurrock Yacht Club has always been proud of its inclusive working class roots, and in conjunction the Sail Thurrock programme welcomes anybody who would like to try sailing.
You do not need to own a boat, although as you gain confidence you may want to go in that direction. However you can sail as crew on other members' boats to start with.
When you sign up to Sail Thurrock, you will get Crew Membership for the year, and we will find you a crewing berth as part of our Team Scheme. You just need to bring yourself and an enthusiasm to try something new.
We are sure it won't take long for that enthusiasm to become a passion!
