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.

Latest changes under Covid19

Now that the nights are drawing in and the temperature dropping, we are providing an area for drinking in the older part of the clubhouse nearer to the bar and an eating area in the conservatory and the 2 rooms at the far end. This has allowed us to have 9 or 10 tables socially distanced for diners and an area for drinkers in the main bar area. 

Although this is a pain for all of us who just want things to return to normal, please stick to the rules as the last thing that we need is a Covid 19 outbreak at the club which results in an enforced closure. 

Our interpretation of the government rules at 14th Sept mean that –

  • No more than 6 in a group and no intermingling between groups.
  • Groups and tables to be 2m apart from each other.
  • Please sign in at the table close to the bar. This is mandatory for ‘Track & Trace’.
  • Social distancing of 2m between people, including queuing for the bar.
  • Drinking inside you must be sitting down at one of the tables in the seating area.
  • Please bring and place upside down dirty glasses in the dishwasher rack provided.
  • As before, only one person in the toilets at a time. 
  • Please use the hand sanitiser.

We look forward to seeing you at the club and on the water – stay safe.
