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.

Pontoon closed

Due to the damage caused by the recent tidal surge the pontoon is out of commission for the time being.  Once everything has been confirmed by our insurance company, work will commence and hopefully the pontoon facilities should be up and running again by Easter.  We will know more later this week and will keep you informed of any developments.

Thank you for your patience.

Safety Boats

We are actively looking to increase our Safety Boat crews and would like to hear from any member who wishes to get involved.

Lobster Pots and Yacht Safety

Poorly marked lobster pots and fishing gear are a hazard to coastal sailors. Fishermen, too, report the loss of expensive gear as a result of entanglements. In one year alone the RNLI has dealt with 295 incidents of fouled propellers, and many encounters go unreported.
