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.

2018 Stickers (Tenders/Dinghies)

The majority of members are now displaying the blue discs on their tenders and dinghies. Well done! If you aren’t one of those folk, it is important that you get yours and display it. Otherwise we’ll have to track you down and employ our special set of skills …. and we will track you down (LOL).  To get yours please contact the Quay Master Colin Merry as soon as...
