Welcome to the HCC

We are an active club with a cruising calendar that typically includes organised cruises of the Swale, Medway, the East Coast, and up to London, and longer cruises to Holland, France, and Belgium. We welcome new members – please come along and meet us at the club on Sunday lunchtime between 1200-1500hrs when the bar is open, and simple food is provided by members.

We also enjoy some great socials during the year, with good wholesome activities like Quiz Nights, Barbecues, the usual Fitting-Out, Laying-Up Suppers and Christmas Parties, and even an annual boat-jumble.

If the burgee is up, we’re open!

Hollowshore Cruising Club is at the head of Oare Creek, beside Oare Road.

See How to find us for details, or to download a membership application form.
