On The Water
Salcombe is a beautiful sailing area with dramatic cliffs, golden beaches and unspoilt creeks. Families and friends can enjoy a great spectator sport either from the splendid vantage point of the Yacht Club terrace with a commanding view of the start and finish line or the beautiful golden sandy beaches of the East Portlemouth shore.
The Ria, which runs from Kingsbridge to Salcombe and the sea provides some of the best dinghy sailing in the United Kingdom. From beginner to expert there is more than enough variety and challenge to provide a great learning environment and tough racing challenge.
Visiting yachts get a warm welcome at the harbour. All are welcome to use the facilities at Salcombe Yacht Club such as the showers, the bar for drinks, food and the lovely view of the estuary .
Salcombe Yacht Club provides top quality racing as well as active encouragement of younger members with cadet training. The Solo, Merlin Rocket, National 12, Cruiser fleets and Salcombe Yawl fleets form the backbone of club racing with a strong Handicap Class fleet providing quality racing.
