Sailing

At the Yealm Yacht Club we have an active racing programme which includes yachts, day boats and dinghies of all sorts.

Members may take part in a racing series or choose from a selection of day and weekend races. We also have an active cadets programme for children over the age of eight years old.

Expect a competitive but fun racing attitude which typically ends with a social back at the club where the antics of each race will usually be dissected over a drink and often a delicious Sailors Supper from the bistro!

Sailors and Competitors should ALWAYS ensure they’ve read and understood the sailing instructions and consider all the necessary safety requirements.  Note, “The responsibility for a boat’s decision to participate in a race or to continue racing is hers alone” (Rule 4 of the Racing Rules of Sailing).
