Bar and restaurant for members and all visiting yachts.

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.

Saturday 3rd June @ 10:30am


We are intending to arrange a Cruise in Company to Fowey on Saturday 3rd June.

High water will be 13.50 so I suggest leaving the Club around 10.30 for a fair tide all the way past the Dodman.

Return to the Helford on Sunday or later to suit people’s cruising plans.

Please contact me on 07790 347520 or at ku.oc.oohaynull@hguoglorackcin  if you are interested.

Boat Watch

This is the time of year we typically see an increase in marine crime. Please ensure you take precautions to protect your items with appropriate locks, where possible remove items of value from boats when unattended, security mark items of value and ensure makes, models and serial numbers are recorded. We also have new stock of protective outboard engine covers and microdot marking kits available. These are available from Macsalvors Boathouse and Robin Curnow Outboards.

Work party needed

A work party is needed to help put boards along the pontoon to stop the dinghies being pushed underneath and sustaining damage.  This is a very important task and we would therefore ask anyone who has a dinghy on the pontoon to help out if possible.  The more volunteers the less time it will take.  Please email Dave Blanning, Captain Moorings if you can help.
