John Ford and family heading out


Huge thanks from Ant and myself to all our members in 2020.  Without your support we couldn’t keep The Club and the bar and restaurant running.  And if you’d like to renew your membership for 2021 that would be wonderful! For ease, photo or scan your filled out form and email to or return completed application to the address on the form. Forms are also available at The Club.

We have three types of memberships:

Social Members – £25

Mooring Members – £25. Click on MOORINGS section for more information
Everyone who has a mooring or rack must be a member of The Club and they can use the slip and pontoon to launch from. They also get all the above benefits of Social Members. Only pontoon members may leave their car in the car park while out on the water. We ask everyone else to unload and then park in the village on the left had side of the road below the chapel.

Launching Members – kayaks and paddleboards
There has been a growing number of people looking to regularly launch kayaks and paddle baords from the slip and pontoons at The Club. If you wish to do this regularly, we can offer a Launching Membership:

  • £175 for the Summer Season – 1st April to 31st October 2022.
  • £125 for the Summer Holidays – 1st July to 15th September 2022.
  • £125 for the Winter – 1st November to 31st March.

The difficulty we have is with our very limited parking. Parking is strictly reserved for pontoon members, people staying at the Upper and Lower Decks and people using the bar and restaurant. So you are welcome to unload and re-load but you must park in the village before going out on the water. Please park on the left hand side of the road towards the Chapel and ideally not in front of houses in the village. (NB There is a public slip in the village).

Launching Membership Application 2022

To enquire about membership, permanent summer and/or winter moorings, or visitor and short term moorings, email Tom at or call 01326 340525.

You can rent boats from Helford River Boats which is 10 minutes away by water and from Sailaway who will deliver to the club.

The Children’s Sailing Trust run fantastic courses for all ages from The Ferry Boat.

Or have a fabulous fast rib experience with August Rock Adventures.

PNYC Clothing

A number of people have asked about PNYC branded clothing so we thought we would do a trial.  We are offering a sweat shirt, a polo shirt and a baseball cap. Each order will be bespoke – so you can decide on product size, colour and wording on the products – eg with your name or without your name.

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.

Red Hot – Seawolf 26ft. Built 1983. Bilge Keel, Bermudan Rig, 8HP Yamaha IGM Diesel, 4 berths in two cabins. More details on application. £8,000 ONO.  Contact

We have a member looking for a 5-6 hp outboard to be used as an auxiliary engine for a Plymouth Pilot.

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.

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.
