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 some weekends.

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.

What an amazing night! It was lovely to see some new faces as well as lots of old ones! Many many thanks to everyone who helped, the night could not have gone so well without plenty of team work!
It was good to see everyone laughing and having fun especially as those champagne bottles were uncorked!
The music was fantastic and there was plenty of dancing going on.
The Helford view tonight was beautiful tonight and it looks like tomorrow (today!) is going to be a good day for the water.
Good luck to everyone tomorrow and may the best man win!
