Thanks for joining us on the Bradwell Cruising Club website.


Our situation in Essex-provides excellent access to all that the East Coast has to offer. There are the delights of the Essex and Suffolk rivers, the historic Thames and it's busy estuary and for the more adventurous Holland, Belgium and France are all within easy reach. The area has a proud history of training and encouraging new sailors, from the Walton Backwaters where the Swallows and Amazons messed around in their boats to HMS Ganges where more grown up sailors learnt their skills.

Our unique little club hosts events that we run throughout the year; ranging from shore based festivities to long distance passages. What ever your vessel, route or distance, we’ve got something for everyone.

2024 Approaches ... ......

Another boating season is fast closing, but before next year arrives, we have been booking marina’s for 2024 !

So checkout our 2024 program and start organizing your plans accordingly. Hopefully the weather will be somewhat kinder and the winds less strong and the sunshine fairer.

We managed to keep nearly on track this year, despite the odd tide times, but 2024 tide times are more favorable.

We have a number of new members who will hopefully join us as most wish to visit places rather than day trips in Englands best secret river !

Enjoy our next boating season, and start booking ...
