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.

Extensive clubhouse, with social calendar throughout the year.

Bar and restaurant for members and all visiting yachts.

Adult sailing on Tuesday evenings.

Yacht racing on Wednesday evenings.

Dinghy racing on Thursday evenings and Sundays.

Junior sailing on Friday evenings.

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.

LOCKDOWN UPDATE – 14TH MAY 2020

HRSC is pleased to announce that following the Government’s relaxation on isolation rules the Committee has decided that from Saturday 16th May the club car park and pontoon will be available for use.

A risk assessment is currently being carried out and notices with rules for safe distancing will be displayed.

Only one boat at a time will be allowed on the slipway and members are requested to exercise patience while waiting for the launching area to be clear of people.

The clubhouse will unfortunately have to remain closed but the balcony will be available with suitably spaced seating.

Membership packs including car park stickers, mooring stickers and membership cards have been posted today.

GOOD NEWS

The 70 year old August Rock navigation buoy has been replaced this season by a brand new buoy, thanks to the generosity of Trinity House Charitable Trust.

It remains a starboard hand buoy and is lit green flash every 5 seconds .

Could we, the Helford River Navigational Aids Committee, who manage the buoys voluntarily, remind river users to remember all four navigation buoys are simply aids to navigation and you should be particularly careful near low water springs?

Chairman HRNAC
