Founded in 1948 and located on the south bank of the Helford River in some of the best sailing waters in England with shore facilities and pontoons.

Extensive clubhouse, with social calendar throughout the year.

Bar and restaurant for members and all visiting yachts.

Yacht racing on Wednesday evenings and most weekends.

Dinghy racing on Thursday evenings and Sundays.

Adult training on Tuesday evenings and Junior sailing on Friday evenings.

New members are always welcome. Just download our membership form, complete the form and the bank mandate and return to the address above. For more information visit our membership page.

The Club always extends a special welcome to families and children. We have a strong junior sailing side and one of the founding objectives of the Club was “to encourage generally messing about in boats in a seamanlike manner” With this in mind, we ask parents to be aware of the inherent dangers of being near water, cliffs and a busy car park. What may be obvious to an adult could present an immediate danger to a child. We ask parents to be responsible for their children, to take warning signs seriously and ensure that lifejackets are worn as appropriate. That said, the river gives us all, both young and old, a tremendous playground right on our doorstep. . . . Enjoy it to the full.

It was the last full sail for the Juniors on Friday evening. There wasn't much sailing going on as most of the boats and kayaks weren't upright for long. It was a great end to a fantastic sailing season. Roll on next year. ⛵️☀️💨

The time has come to report to Members regarding the problems the Club has experienced this summer which have affected many of you.

We took on new stewards who came highly recommended and had many years of experience. Sadly it soon became obvious that they had no idea of how to run a Club. The food was inconsistent, as was the staffing of the Club. The cleaning was also not up to the standard required. The Committee had no choice but to terminate their contract in view of their fundamental
breach of agreement.

The next step was to employ a chef, bar staff and waiting staff to run and clean the Club, organising daily menus and various functions that happen during the summer season. During the first couple of weeks we had problems with chefs leaving, staff not turning up for work, which gave us no time to inform Members that the Club may be closed which was very annoying and disappointing for Members and guests.

We hope we have now solved these problems for the remainder of the season before we commence the winter opening times. We are taking steps to advertise for new stewards so that we can select the best candidates. We will keep you informed
of our progress.

Vice Commodore Heather Ibotson has worked wonderfully well under extreme pressure organising staff and replacing them when necessary and must be praised for her efforts in running the Club.

The Committee would like to apologise to Members for all the inconvenience caused by our problems this summer and also for the lack of communication to Members.

Cruise in Company to Fowey Saturday 27th August

Would anyone like to join us in a cruise in company to Fowey this coming weekend? The weather forecast looks promising - sun and force 3-4 South Westerly.

I suggest leaving the Club around 11.00 on Saturday 27th to reach Fowey in good time for tea or early evening drink!

Return either Sunday or even Monday when the wind might go North Westerly for the trip back.

Email me if you're interested.
