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.
