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.
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.
Not feeling in the festive mood yet? Then why not come along to the clubhouse on Thursday 15th December at 19.00 hrs and sing some carols with accompaniment by ‘Tiger Tales’.
There will be sausage rolls, cocktail pasties and mulled wine available.
After the carol singing why not put on your dancing shoes and really get into the Christmas spirit!

There will be a Yacht Wash Up Meeting at the clubhouse on Friday 4th November starting at 18.30 hrs.
Everyone is welcome to come along – not just our regular racers. We want to expand our racing fleet as much as possible for next year so come along and see what will be happening in 2017.
Dave Sumner would like to join me in thanking all those that formed muster to retrieve the Club Wayfarer dinghies from the water on Saturday. In addition to the strong turnout from our active Adult Sailing section, assistance from Dave Church; Dan Flunder; Stephen Brooks; Keith Goy; Mark Ibotson (apologies to anyone I have left out) made for an orderly and quick haul out.
Eight Wayfarers were recovered from the water in a somewhat testing easterly slop by a team not afraid to get their feet wet. Two trailers were utilised to shuttle the boats up the ramp where another team parked them up. Not content with getting them out of the water members then pressure washed the boats, removed all gear to the shed, before un-stepping the masts.
Dave Sumner and his ‘team’ have a full programme of maintenance planned over the winter and any offer of help would be appreciated.
Adult sailing on Tuesday evenings (and socially throughout the winter) is a great way to make new friends and enjoy the beautiful Helford River – why not give it a go!
It was good working with you all.
Rear Commodore Sailing
There is currently a vacancy on the Club Committee for a Captain Social. This position would be ideal for someone who likes organising and attending social events at the Club and can be very rewarding.
The ladies showers at the clubhouse are to be upgraded and will therefore be out of use from 0800 hrs on Monday 3rd October.
Ladies wishing to shower after this time should use the disabled shower next to the ladies toilets.
We apologise for this inconvenience.
