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.

Yacht racing on Wednesday evenings.

Dinghy racing on Thursday evenings and Sundays.

Adult sailing on Tuesday evenings.

Junior sailing on Friday evenings.

New members are always welcome. Just download and complete our membership form including the bank mandate, and return by post to the address above. For more information 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.
