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.

Members may be interested in a new book by local author Christian Boulton.

‘Five Million Tides’ is a history of the Helford River from prehistoric times to today and describes ‘one of the most important waterways in Britain’.

Despite being mainland Britain’s most southerly haven, it has not always been a place of good fortune. Once a thriving seat of Celtic Christianity, it would end up more associated with villainous seafarers. Nor could it be always relied upon for sanctuary from storms, as the numerous graves of mariners in its village churchyards attest.

Available from Amazon.

Drying moorings

The Club has 3 drying moorings suitable for boats up to 22ft available for rental.  They are situated a short distance from the end of the Club pontoon.  They will dry out on a big spring tide.

The cost is £440 for this season.

If you are interested in renting one of these moorings please contact Penny at the Club office – 01326 231006 or email moc.tcennoctbnull@nimda-csrh.

Thank you

Yoga Classes at HRSC

I am planning to start Yoga Classes again at HRSC on Friday mornings from 9.30am – 11am. The cost will be £54 for 6 sessions or £10 per individual session.

It is preferable if students can book for 6 sessions at a time but I understand that commitment is not always possible so you can also book in for single sessions, preferably in advance.

If you book for 6 sessions and have to miss one then you  are welcome to drop in to the St. Martin’s class at St. Martin’s village hall on a Wednesday to make up. This class is also 9.30am – 11am.

If you wish to try a class to see if it suits you then please drop in to either class.

All welcome – beginners and improvers
