Health & Safety Declaration

Before sailing, we will ask you to sign a Declaration stating that you have read, understood and accept the following documents (download at bottom of this page)

These documents are produced to help new members feel well informed and comfortable in the club and on the water, and to share knowledge, experience and advice. They also emphasise Club Safety Procedures.

Club Boat Contributions

Any member may reserve a club boat in advance, with an additional £10 per boat, per session and payable on the day of sailing. 

Note- All Club Members can only use club boats at club sailing events, whilst the safety boat is on the water: Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings throughout the season. Please see Notices of Race on 'Sailing and Racing' page for full details.

Local Residents

If you live locally (in Cornwall) and would like to try out sailing then give us a call, or come along and say hello.  We’ll do our best to get you on the water depending on your ability and the conditions.  Potential new members may sail up to 4 times at no charge. However, they must sign up as a member at the start and agree payment but deferred to the end of 4 consecutive sails. 

To join as a member, we simply need some details from you on our Membership Form, (see above) and the appropriate subscription, ideally paid by bank transfer.

Please compete the online membership form before attending any sailing sessions.

On Holiday?

Full membership is available to anybody, worldwide!! However, for anyone living outside of Cornwall, on holiday or an occasional visitor, then Out of County (OOC) membership may be perfect for you & costs just £25. You can book a boat for the times you are on holiday, or just come down to the club pen at 12.00 Saturday or 17.00 Wednesday to find out more.

All OOC members must hold a valid Royal Yachting Association (RYA) 1 & 2 certificate before using a club boat (or be sailing with someone that holds certificate). Existing or renewing OOC members who do not hold RYA 1 & 2 certificate must have a committee member vouch for their sailing competence before using club boat.

Bring your own dinghy

Out of County members may bring their own dinghy and store them in our boat pen for the duration of their stay for a fee of £25 per week and subject to availability within the pen. Please call in advance for availability.
