Starcross Yacht Club

Welcome to the Starcross Yacht Club web site

Starcross Yacht Club is reputed to be one of the oldest sailing clubs in the British Isles, having been loosely formed to organise a sailing regatta all the way back in 1772. However, it is now a thoroughly go-ahead, modern and informal family club devoted to the pursuit of small boat sailing.  Originally situated in Starcross village, since 1957 the club has been based at our present location at Powderham Point on the west bank of the Exe Estuary, where we have all the facilities expected by keen sailors. There are excellent changing rooms and showers, plus launching and berthing facilities for sailing dinghies and catamarans.

Hafren Round Britain / RYA SW SGM

I don't know how many of you followed, open mouthed in astonishment, the progress of the Hafren team as they sailed their Wayfarer round Britain in just 32 days this summer? We did - it was essential viewing over the morning cornflakes to see where their GPS track showed they'd reached. It was clear that they were keen on breaking the previous record when their first leg was Weymouth to Milford Haven - non stop! There'll be a talk about their trip on Saturday 8th November at SYC. The current plan is that the talk will start at about 14:15 but may be a little earlier depending on how the RYA South West regional AGM progresses (which precedes the talk)
