Hello and Welcome from all of us at Pentewan Sands Sailing Club.
P.S.S.C was established in 1970 after relocating from Carylon Bay to Pentewan, which offered a more favourable club base and water access. The sailing clubs sailboat compound is at the head of Pentewans long sandy beach with the current clubhouse and power boat compound set further back towards Pentewan village. To the front are the great sailing waters of Mevagissey bay and St. Austell bay.
We sail every Sunday, if conditions allow, from April to December and every Thursday evening from May to September along with a few Saturdays and bank holidays. For club sailing days we always have a safety boat on the water however club members can take their own boats out whenever they want.
Pentewan Sands Sailing Club has been sailing multi-hulls (Dart 18's and others) for a good number of years although we are not solely a catamaran sailing club as several members sail various types of Lasers and other monos and are very welcome to join in club racing.
Pentewan Sands Sailing Club has hosted a number of National, European and World championship competitions, from a diverse range of craft from windsurfers, monos to catamarans. With great accommodation next door on the beach at Pentewan Sands Holiday park as well as local B&Bs in Pentewan village there is a variety of accommodation to suit all competitors and budgets! We have become established as one of the favourite venues in the UK for all levels of competitive sailing with the Sprint 15s returning over several years and have a good reputation for both safety and race management as well as hosting some great post competition socials!
Club members don’t just sail! You’ll find us out kayaking, surfing, kite-surfing, waterskiing and diving if conditions are not favourable for sailing and we have Mid Cornwall Divers and the Endeavour club associated to us.
We are also able to offer boat storage be that power, sail or kayak to club members.
