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.

Cor blimey, Guvnor, where have the last three weeks gone! Time to gird the loins and get ready to re-open the bar and restaurant again from Thursday 20th January. Our thanks to Fran and Ant for bravely holding the fort with Frantic Fridays over the last two weeks.

Mike and Debs will be back in the kitchen preparing menu items anew on Wednesday and Thursday, so we are happy to take bookings for dinner from Thursday 20th January.

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.

I will be sending out mooring forms this week with the new prices that we announced last Autumn. We have had only one person leaving the pontoon this year and that empty place has been filled with someone from the waiting list. We are also fully subscribed for the beach and swing moorings and it looks like we are full on the trots as well.  We would ask that payment for moorings is made not later than 1st March to secure your spot again for the Summer and we would appreciate earlier payment if possible as it helps our cash flow in January and February.  We plan to re-deck the remaining pontoons that haven’t been done over the last two years and to add more anti-slip strips to the pontoon. In addition we will look to boost the flotation of some of the finger’s on the pontoon so that you keep your feet dry when getting aboard. And finally, with the help of Phil Clarke and Falmouth Marine School, we are going to get some work done on the club tender.

This remains £25 for the year.  I will email all our social members with a form and the bank details, which are the same – PNYC Ltd, Lloyds, 30-80-48, 51425568.  I will add an option on the email where you just have to tick, same details as last year, and I will fill in your form for you and send out membership cards without you having to do the form yourself.

We really appreciate the help that you, the members, give in supporting us to improve the club for everyone. Last year we were able to do the following; re-plaster the front of the clubhouse; relay the surface in front of the clubhouse and the seating area; put the roofing up over the seating area; re-deck two of the pontoons; instal new sockets and a light on the beach wall; replace some of the outside lighting; re-cover all the benches in the clubhouse and improve the lighting inside; and as a club, we supported Clean Ocean Sailing. This year, with your help, we plan to improve the outside seating areas further and to put up a roofed area on the pontoon side of the clubhouse with a long bar-style table with 15 bar stools so that you can sit overlooking the pontoon and the water while enjoying your drink and food. We will also be putting up some new lamps in the car park asap to improve the lighting.
