HELFORD RIVER SAILING CLUB

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.

Members and visitors using the Clubhouse will be met with a warm welcome from our friendly team including Club Steward Ollie and Chef Julian. A varied menu is available and the bar is stocked with a large selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. There are laundry facilities with washing machine and tumble dryer, and showers to freshen up after a day’s sailing.

New members are always welcome. Please visit our membership page. Holiday Membership forms are available from the bar and office.

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.

Sunday roasts are now back!

Now the weather is more autumnal and the club less busy, the inside of the clubhouse is now open for drinking and eating, including our classic Sunday roasts (which will be served on plates with proper cutlery!)

This has meant we have had to follow the health and safety regulations laid down by the Government.

The procedures now are:

  • Enter the club house by the balcony door wearing masks and sanitise your hands.
  • The door to the front of the club will be locked to come through into the club but is available to exit in case of emergency. This is because of track and trace restrictions.
  • Dress warmly as all the other doors and windows will need to be open to help with ventilation and control of the spread of the coronavirus.
  • Ollie/ Becky or another member of staff will greet you and show you to a table, which is limited to 6 people.
  • They will need to take your name and contact number for track and trace or you can use your NHS App and scan our QR code.
  • They will take your order for drinks/food and serve them to you at the table.
  • To use the toilet facilities, you need to follow the one-way system and wear your mask.
  • Unfortunately, people need to stay at their tables and not mingle inside the clubhouse.
  • When we serve food, we are encouraging members to book their table prior to coming in to eat as we only have limited tables.
  • To book a table please either email moc.liamgnull@csrevirdrofleh or call 01326 231460.

 Thank you to all members for being respectful of others and following the Government rules
