Port Navas Yacht Club is a friendly members club that welcomes visitors.

Founded in 1958, the Club is part of the picturesque village of Port Navas, set on the beautiful Helford River. From the Club you have access onto The Helford river and out into Falmouth Bay. Or you can go inland down the river to Gweek passing ancient oak forests on the way – but make sure you get the tides right.

We have 34 Pontoon berths, 12 Trot moorings, 7 Swing moorings, 27 beach moorings and racks for small dinghies. For more information on moorings, including prices, see MOORINGS section. Parking is, we are afraid, limited. Where possible, or when the car park is full, please could you park in the village and walk along the charming river front – it’s a three minute walk and good for you!

Visiting boats can use the pontoon, the Club, the shower and loos – see VISITORS section.  All boat owners are members and we have a very loyal section of Social Members who, at £25 a year, help us to run the Club – see MEMBERS section.

Our small and quirky Bar and Restaurant serves great value food and drink. It’s run by Nigel Logan and Mike Maguire and welcomes members and non-members alike. 

PNYC is managed by Tom and Antonia (Ant) Ellemann.

PNYC is proud to be Patron of Clean Ocean Sailing.

Sailing weekend to Fowey and back

Expecting to leave Saturday morning, have dinner all together at the Royal Fowey Yacht Club, and return Sunday morning.

The intention is to take as many people as possible so please sign up as a boat fully crewed, boat with room on board for however many, or as a willing deck hand. Then we can do some matching up.

This is a chance to get out of your usual stomping ground, meet other club members, and have an all round top weekend.

Both sail and motor boats are welcome.

Please reply to roberttempleton92@gmail.com by the end of April so we can finalise the details.

Yours aye,
Rob Templeton
Race Captain

The new Summer Season has arrived. Along with occasional flurries of snow and sleet!  

Many thanks to the Winter beach yachts who have all returned to their Summer moorings. Lovely to have you over the Winter.  The beach is now empty and I have put out orange line to mark out the running lines.  Please use SINKING line (which makes it easier for others to get in and out) and please remember to put a bucket over any outboard to protect it and other boats.  

With regards to the pontoon, it might take a little longer to get everyone into their correct place as we still have a couple of Winter boats with us. But there is space for everyone who wants to get on now – just let me know you are coming and we will sort out a place, even if it is not your full time Summer mooring. Should be all sorted by the end of this week.  

We are waiting for Seawide Services to service all the swing moorings. I have serviced the trot moorings.  Please remember that there are lines between all the navy blue trot moorings with yellow pick up buoys, so try not to cross them or you will get caught up. There is no line over the channel just to the stern of Mivvy, the lovely black Mk1 Crabber.  New navy blue trot buoys are on order to replace the motley collection of 4-5 mixed buoys that we had to use last year – it was impossible to get new ones last year due to Covid and supply issues.  

Mivvy looking splendid.  

Early commendations to Kurt and Lucy’s Mivvy and Reece and Emma’s Otter for their immaculate condition! And a mention for Dan’s Faith too. Our two boats, needless to say, are not working at present.

We are looking for volunteers to help repair, clean, sand and paint the 5 Sailing Trust Regatta Dinghies which we use for The Regatta.  Would plan to spend one day just up the road at Henry Collin’s farm and to do a group “blitz”.  We would pick a date in May that works for the most people volunteering.

We had a lovely afternoon and early evening watching Ireland vs Scotland and then France vs England on the final day of The 6 Nations. It started very badly when my laptop was not allowed to share the screen on our big TV thanks to a new bit of ITV software (when previously it worked perfectly). There was almost a riot but huge thanks to Emma White who rustled up an old laptop which then plugged straight into the TV and away we went, 20 minutes into Scotland vs Ireland.  Food followed the first game and then unfortunatley we had to watch the better team, France, beat England. But it was great fun to share the pain with others.

04 Apr


We have put up some new lighting in the car park – just in time for the Summer!  But hopefully it will help in those dark Winter months. We have also almost finished painting the corrugated shed.  Drekly this month we will start building the new outside “bar” space running along the side of the restaurant. We will have to block off access to that area during the works for health and safety reasons – don’t want anyone falling onto the pontoon below.  This should provide a lovely, covered area with 15-18 bar stools looking out over the creek and with full sun for most of the day.

Spring has sprung, the grass is ris…….

If you can keep out of the Easterly winds, it certainly is very spring like this week. You could even catch the last of the sun on the outside tables on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. To make it more attractive, we will be resuming a bar snack menu for outside this week, so if you are pining for Mike’s dirty fries with beef & chorizo chilli, or a bowl of crayfish fries, then this is the place to be.

Mike and Debs will also be bringing some lighter Spring dishes onto the restaurant menu over the next couple of weeks so have a look at this week’s menu and give us a call if you would like to book a table.

To book a table please email nigel@pnyc.co.uk with your requirements, or leave a voice message on 01326 340 065 and he will get back to you.

Here’s to a brighter and less disrupted season.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Mike & Nigel
