Medway Yacht Club (MYC) located at Lower Upnor on the banks of the tidal River Medway just down river from Chatham historic dockyard is only 35 miles from central London and is easily accessible from London, Kent, Sussex or Essex.
The tidal Medway on which the club operates still provides the excellent sailing described by Ufa Fox perfect for both racing and cruising. The many reaches, bends and creeks provide for a wide variety of courses and for our racing fleets and secluded anchorages for cruisers. Located nine miles from the mouth of the river our positioning provides enough protection to allow sailing in all but the most challenging of weather conditions. Our location in the south of the Thames estuary gives access to the beautiful, uncrowded and unspoilt east coast with easy short passage to the delightful cruising grounds of the Netherlands, Belgium France and beyond. The Solent can be reached by a 30 foot family cruiser in around 24 hours.
