Sailing / Yacht Club
The Club is one of the oldest yacht clubs in the British Isles, having been formed in 1772. However, it is now a thoroughly modern, informal family club devoted to the pursuit of small boat sailing. We moved out of the village of Starcross in 1957, to our present location at Powderham on the west bank of the River Exe, where we have all the facilities expected by keen small boat sailors. There are excellent changing rooms and showers, plus launching and berthing facilities for sailing dinghies and catamarans. Whilst our site is totally private, including our own car park, the main advantage of the location is it fronts a picturesque quiet and uncluttered wide stretch of the river where excellent sailing can be enjoyed.
