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.
John Lake will present a talk on his trip to the frozen North ‘The Arctic Rally’ at 19.30hrs. Food arrangements TBA.
A selection of audiophile quality records played on a vintage quad sound system. A casual event with music in the end rooms. Just wander in and out as you please … before, during or after enjoying Tom’s excellent food. There may also be some classic ‘Shellac Sounds’ revealed by a well know Club Member.
Supper followed by the ‘Big Prize Quiz’. Times TBA.
Have your equipment checked for full peace of mind from 18.00 to 20.00hrs. The bar will be open.

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.
