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 Club Steward Ollie and our friendly team. 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.

Missing VHF Radios

Dear Member,

A check has been carried out of the VHF radios and unfortunately we are currently missing 4 Icoms and one SH from the radio cupboard.

If you have inadvertently taken one home, could you please return any radio to the Clubhouse at your earliest convenience.

Thank you.

Members Update

Dear Members,

Firstly I’d like to apologise for the lack of emails being sent out this week. Unfortunately our entire clubhouse team is having to isolate since a confirmed positive Covid test among them, so our usual processes have been disrupted.

The clubhouse has been deep cleaned and since the further lifting of restrictions, it can now open for the use of toilets and showers. If you do enter the clubhouse, please sign the track and trace form or use the QR code with the NHS app at either entrance.

We have a temporary volunteer team opening the bar on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th July in the evening from 6pm. We are also very happy to announce that we have Chimichangas Mobile Catering food van coming to the club on the Saturday from 6pm, so please join us for some fantastic Mexican street food.
