News & Events

A number of social events are held during the season, including BBQs, a quiz night, a Fitting Out Supper at the beginning of the season and a Laying Up Supper (Dinner and Prize-giving) in November each year.
Push The Boat Out - It's our Open Day! Sunday 19 May, from 2-5pm.

Whether you’re completely new to sailing, hoping to sail more regularly or even to get back on the water - men, women, young people and families can find out more about dinghy sailing at our Open Day. Dinghy sailing is a fun sport that is being promoted all over the UK by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA).

'Push the Boat Out' is an RYA initiative which was first created as part of the RYA Sail for Gold Programme which was launched in March 2011.   The 2019 event will take place over the month of May, and will see clubs and centres across the UK holding open days and inviting those who live locally to come and have a go at sailing and windsurfing.

Come along to Tonbridge Town Sailing Club's 'Push The Boat Out' Open Day and find out what sailing involves -  weather permitting, we offer visitors a dinghy ride around our beautiful  Haysden Lake.  Members will be on hand to advise on other aspects of the club too,  such as racing and social activities. “Try sailing with us" says Keith Minster, the club’s Commodore. " We’re inviting the local community to come along and find out what sailing involves and what our family-friendly club has to offer.  And this year, we are introducing an Open Day Special Offer Membership package.”
Tonbridge Town Sailing Club is an RYA Training Centre, with an enthusiastic and dedicated team of instructors for Adult and Youth learn to sail courses.  There is also a thriving Junior Club. The club has a selection of club-owned dinghies for use by competent adult and younger members during the sailing season, so it isn't necessary to own a boat. 

Sailing is a sport that can be enjoyed for pleasure at your own pace: on your own (single-handed), with a crew or the whole family. Or, it can be highly competitive in the local racing scene, national or Olympic level. Come along and see for yourself!

The 'Push The Boat Out' Open Day event is free, with refreshments available to purchase.

Booking for Open Day is not required, but we welcome enquiries by email to
