Sailing / Yacht Club
The Maidstone Sailing Club officially began in 1958. Club members met at the Old Brew House, which was located in Mote Park. The club regularly hosted organized racing events, which were attended by various sailing clubs around the British Isles. The races were usually held on Sunday mornings, bank holidays, and on Wednesday evenings during the summer months. Locals and visitors to Mote Lake frequently enjoyed the vision of sail boats skimming across the water. Sailing lessons at varying experience levels were also offered to those who were interested in learning to sail or to improve their expertise.
