Andy Stamp Commodore


Thanks for dropping in on the Tamar River Sailing Club website. TRSC is a small friendly family club situated on the sunny Devon banks of the River Tamar. We have easy access to the open sea as Plymouth Sound and distant horizons are only a short sail away. The Club has much to offer.  Our 250 members enjoy the use of an extensive quay, two slipways, an all tide pontoon, 60 or so trot moorings (and more than 10 private swing moorings) and a comfortable clubhouse. I believe our facilities and location are hard to beat. The clubhouse is also available to hire at a very reasonable rate.

The Club hosts two well supported Regattas during the summer months, one for yachts and one for dinghies. Members may join our Facebook group “Tamar River Sailing Club” for extra information. We have a varied and exciting year ahead with a busy social calendar, both ashore and afloat. Visitors and prospective members are always very welcome when the Club is open and I look forward to seeing you all.

As an RYA recognised training centre and we are able to provide our members with a variety of sail and power courses. Racing for yachts takes place on Mondays in the spring and summer and on Saturdays in the autumn and winter. Dinghies race on Wednesday evenings. The expanding Cadet section meet on Friday nights (spring and summer) and get to use our fleet of modern club owned dinghies.

Just a quick reminder to say that the quiz night this month is Wednesday 19th September. It is usually held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, but has been moved just this month to the 3rd Wednesday to help the dinghy racers make the most of the remains of the summer. The bar will be open however and all members are, as always, very welcome to join-in or just...

Honda Rib Challenge Heat Winners

The Regional final of the Honda Youth Rib was held on September 1st. All ten competitors were from TRSC. The younger age winner was Ryan Sherlock and the older age group was Jack Ryan. Very well done to everyone but particularly to Jack and Ryan (both will be attending the national final at the Southampton boat...

Winter Storage

If you lift out into the yard, don’t forget to let James know that you still want to, which lift you prefer and whether or not you’d like to take down your mast. Some established boats are no longer with us, so those with highest seniority will have a chance to over winter in the...

Rubble in the Yard

We are working on fixing the clubhouse, which (in case you didn’t know) is a bit below par. Part of this was a planned excavation of the yard to verify just what the club is built on. The good news is that the foundations are of a high quality and appropriate. It turns out that a storm drain has been discharging into the ground beneath the club and this has caused some significant problems. Building work is needed to make everything good again and we have a plan to do just that. Once we have a detailed plan we will update...

Yacht Regatta 2018

Tamar River Sailing Club Yacht Regatta 2018 The latest annual Tamar River Sailing Club Regatta was a fantastic success. The weekend of 22nd to 24th of June 2018 brought us fair weather and just about sufficient winds which were enjoyed fully by the competitors. With a class for novice helm and others for white sail experienced racers (Cruisers and J24s) a total of eleven yachts entered the races held on the River Tamar. Most were from the TRSC but others came from Saltash and other local clubs. Off the water; on Friday night, the local delights of Pasties and Cream Teas ran out all too quickly. Luckily, the weather was brilliant for the BBQ on Saturday which was punctuated by the dancing of a bunch of sailors who should have been too tired to stay up so late. For results, please see the dedicated...
