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.

BOOKING OUT CLUB DINGHIES ➤

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.

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.

Kitchen Closure

Dear Members, It is with great sadness that due to one of our kitchen staff testing positive for Covid we’re having to close the kitchen while a PCR test is carried out and the kitchen is deep cleaned. We’ll let you know as soon as we can open again.

    * You won’t be served at the bar, please remain at your table to be asked for your order

    * You’ll need to book tables inside for food, while the balcony remains first come first served. Any walk-ins may have a longer wait for food

    * We ask that masks are worn at all times except when sitting down at your table

    * Please continue to check in with the NHS T&T app and/or the track and trace forms provided

    Thank you for your cooperation while we work hard to remain open for your enjoyment. Our Facebook and Instagram pages will have updated information for you.

    Both courses take place over 2 consecutive Saturdays. If you have had some previous dinghy sailing experience you can go straight to the Level 2 course, but doing both levels will give more practice and time on the water.

    The courses take place in single-handed dinghies so you will need a wetsuit. Buoyancy aids are provided by CST. You will picked up from HRSC pontoon and ferried to the beach on the north bank of the Helford where the courses take place.

    The cost of each course is £150

    If you would like to sign up for a course please email me
