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.

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...
