Welcome To Our Club

Located on the edge of Mounts Bay in West Cornwall, our club is situated on some of the best sailing waters in the UK.

We are very much a family club with members of all ages and ambitions, from internationally competitive dinghy racers to offshore cruising sailors and everything in between.

Join a club that has been awarded with a RYA Club of the Year Award and the RYA Onboard Cornish Club of the Year Award.

Become a member from as little as £25 for Under 18s and £60 for adults.
