Bart's Bash - 21st September

Bart's Bash


1630hrs - Starts for Cats, Dinghies and Juniors

(Entry fee/donation £5 per Adult or £3 per Junior)

Only 4 days left to enter - click here

UPDATE - 11th September (10 days to go)

In order to help with issues such as catering and administration on the day, we would be most grateful if you could register on-line (OPENS tab above) if you are likely to participate on the 21st. We won't hold you to it if the weather is lousy or you are abducted by aliens on the day but it will make organisation less of a guessing game.

GO PRO Owners - if you are the proud owner of a Go Pro would you consider using it on the day, or even lending it to somebody who is taking part? During the Bash we will be creating a video record, partly as a requirement for participation in the record attempt but also to put together something which we can upload to the Club website to show what Starcross has to offer (cue windless drift-fest on the 21st!).

If you would be happy to use/lend your Go Pro on the day, please let me know through the forum or on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I've updated the forum with a list of those who've kindly volunteered to take on roles on the day. Thank you all...more volunteers will be welcome.

Details of Post-Bash menu are now on the forum (see link below)

Please see the accompanying document that gives all the details you need to register for the event.

For the very latest SYC specific details see the this SYC forum post.

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.

Watch a video of sailing at SYC during the 2012-13 season.

Working party - 27th September

There's a working party on the SYC calendar for Saturday 27th September starting at 10:00. While nominally for those who partake of yacht cruising everyone is, of course, very welcome. The tasks and more details are on the poster but it is fair to say that "shingle shovelling" may feature predominantly so bring your wellies and wheel barrows.

f you feel like registering, then it will help to gauge the number of free "thank you" lunches that need to be provided but do feel free to just turn up on the day.

If you've no idea what's involved in an SYC working party here's a few photos from a previous one.
