Launching arrangements for non Southend on Sea area based dinghies
Whilst traveling dinghy entrants are welcome to use the launching facilities at Benfleet Yacht Club, we do recognise that our location is a long way from the start line, plus with the tide being out for a large majority of the time, it makes for a long day.
Therefore we have made special arrangements with both Thorpe Bay Yacht Club and Alexandra Yacht Club to allow dinghies traveling from outside of the area to use their club and launching facilities on the day of the Nore Race. Both clubs offer good access to the water and are not too far from the start & finish areas. Please contact the club's directly to make arrangements.
