Don’t know how to sail?
If you like the idea of sailing, but don’t know where to start, don’t worry. Our Training Group teaches many new members to sail each year.
Our clubhouse overlooks Mounts Bay and with its modern facilities makes it an ideal location whether you are going sailing or coming to watch sailing.
Our club “Penzance Sailing Club” was formed in 1939 by seven people who bought 14 foot West of England Conference Redwings.
Affiliated to RYA
Penzance Sailing Club is affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) which means we subscribe to their standards. The RYA is national authority for sailing and other watersports in the United Kingdom. RYA Team GBR, Great Britain’s Olympic sailing team, have positioned Britain as the most successful sailing nation in Olympic history and sailing as Britain’s current top-performing Olympic sport.
Run by the members - for the members
You are welcome to visit the club during any sailing events to watch what goes on and talk to our members. All club activities are run by members on a voluntary basis. Events range from short but fast dinghy racing to an overnight race to the Isles of Scilly. We really have something for everyone.
A great day today for the COGS Falmouth-Penzance race, held by Penzance Sailing Club and sponsored by A2 Rigging.
We saw the clubhouse full with all the competitors having finally made it around, in challenging light winds but glorious sunshine.
The weather was perfect on Saturday for the 2018 club regatta.
Thanks again to all who made the day possible on the safety boats and also to Brian and Liz who did great work in the race office with help from Adrian, Theresa (and Dave) put in the long hours in the galley and BBQ, and Colin who was everywhere from Courselayer to Deepsea to bar.
