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.

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.

Restaurant and Bar

Hi Everyone

I’m Tom Moore, the New Head Chef at the Helford River Sailing Club. Some of you guys may already know me but for those of you who don't, I started cooking at HRSC when I was a teenager and have been a member for many years.

Since then, I have been cooking all over the world for about 16 years including France, Austria and a short spell in New Zealand.  Closer to home, I have worked at The New Yard Restaurant at Trelowarren, The Cove at Maenporth, and most recently The Mount Haven Hotel  at Marazion.

I will be running a simple menu with some classics on it, alongside a daily changing Blackboard Menu featuring what is freshly available on the day from local suppliers.

I look forward to seeing you at the Club soon.
