Lower Halstow Yacht Club, regarded by many as the friendliest yacht club on the River Medway.
LHYC, a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC), can be found at the head of Halstow creek in the lovely village of Lower Halstow.
As a CASC, membership is open to all. The club is entirely run by unpaid volunteers which helps keep fees low. Please see the Membership Application page for more info about the club’s fees and how to join.
The club, affiliated to both the RYA and the MSBA, offers members informal racing and cruising throughout the summer months all backed up with a variety of off-water social events.
LHYC exists very much on a self help basis and now boasts many facilities all achieved through the hard work of the membership. Visitor bouys are available, however, the tide at most only provides suitable depth for one and a half hours each side of high water.
If you are visiting the Medway area and the tide is in your favour, don’t immediately drop the hook in Stangate creek, sail on for a mile or so and come and see us.
