Hi Guys  - I am about to move to Plymouth from Fareham.  I am in Hill Head Sailing Club at the moment, sailing an RS Feva with my kids (12 and 9).  Looking for a family friendly sailing club down that part of the world.  Can anyone suggest a good club?  Thanks  Al

When I was at Uni i was a member of Royal Plymouth Corinthian YC They were pretty friendly, the club was split into yachties and dinghy-ists and spots in their dinghy park always used to go quick.  But phoenix warf round the corner is pretty good and alot cheaper than Queen Annes Battery Marina.  Don't know what the score is with Mountbatten now but that may be worth a sniff aswell.  Bit of a longer drive or a water taxi though.

Blimey forgot Mayflower at phoenix warf.  Cheaper and not as nice a biulding as RPCYC but still nice enough.  They all used to combine for racing.

When I was in Plymouth 30 odd years ago , Mayflower S C was THE dinghy club on Plymouth Sound. They had some of the best dinghy sailors in the South West and were an incredibly friendly and helpful bunch. Plymouth Week was a 'MUST DO'.

Happy memories!!

Glad to hear they're still going but disappointed that you almost forgot them tack'ho !

Far too old to still be doing this......

Depends where you will be living in Plymouth. There is really good dinghy sailing at Torpoint (across the Ferry from Plymouth), Saltash (across the bridge) or Cargreen (a bit further up the river Tamar). All are brilliant clubs with good dinghy racing (not quite Solent size fleets but competitive & friendly) and also all run cadet evenings/courses. There is also Plymouth Youth Sailing run out of the Mountbatten Centre. If you need any more info, just PM me. I am from that neck of the woods!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Thanks to all of you for the info on Plymouth sailing clubs.  Gives me plenty to go on when I get down there.  If you see an orange hulled Feva afloat (last years Southampton Boat Show display) give us a wave.  Al

Might also be worth looking at www.ppsa.org.uk , they deal with most of the racing and events carried out in Plymouth Sound. Wednesday nights seem to be the nights for racing on the Plym esturay, both the Youths from Mount Batten and boats racing with Royal Plymouth Corinthian were out tonight...... The other clubs I mentioned in the e-mail are still worth looking into, but on the Plym side, the most active for racing seems to be with the Royal Corinthian. The beauty of the Plymouth area is that there are quite a few clubs within a very short sailing distance of each other and all will let you take part in racing with quite a low entry fee, for instance you could choose to keep your boat at one club for the training benefits for the kids ie cadet groups and be able to take part in the other clubs' racing series. So far we've found every club down here really friendly to new members.
