Welcome to the East Farleigh Cruising Club. We are a very friendly cruising and social club based on the beautiful River Medway in Kent around the lovely village of East Farleigh.
We regularly cruise The Medway, The East Coast, the River Thames and further afield throughout the summer months and hold social functions throughout the year. Although we are based on the non-tidal section of the River Medway we have members from both the tidal and non-tidal sections of the river. New members are always welcome.
We have our own club land situated on the banks of the Medway at Teston which it has owned since 1988. This is for members to enjoy at any time and where events are regularly held during the summer. We take good care of the site and run two working parties at the beginning and end of the season where we keep the undergrowth and bankside in check, ending the day with a BBQ. There is no additional fee to use the land and no booking is required. It is situated on a beautiful part of the river and is within walking distance of Wateringbury village.

As we’re a boating an social club, we hold a number of events throughout the year both during and outside the boating season. During the summer months, we run cruises on the tidal and non-tidal parts of the river, we have an annual fun day on the land which is a great family event, we have bank holiday weekend cruises to the estuary and further afield, fishing competitions and tender races to name but a few. Off season we hold Christmas, valentines and our annual “lifting in” and “lifting out” dinners as well as ladies nights, quiz nights and race nights.
New members are normally nominated by an existing member, but we can also consider new members without nominations. After completing their membership from, new members are interviewed by the membership secretary and the committee. Membership costs include a one off cost followed by a small annual fee. As well as access to our events, the land and a very welcoming and friendly club where experiences members are only too happy to share their knowledge, membership also entitles you to access areas of this site where we have have news, notices, discussion forums, a social shop and access to a host of other useful resources and information. You also receive a quarterly printed newsletter and our yearbook.
