The Club was founded in 1905 and is situated on the site of the old railway station, Instow, near the confluence of the Taw and Torridge rivers.  With a 7m tidal range the estuary provides challenging sailing conditions for sailors of all experiences, within the Bideford Bar and beyond into the Bristol Channel.

The Club has a number of training boats ranging from Picos and Lasers to Wayfarers and two new Laser Bahias.  For 2017 we also have 6 new RS Fevas.  During the Season we run races most weekends, weather permitting! The Club hosts many national events and also training for Cadets and Adults. All sailors are welcome - even if you just fancy coming down for a chat and a beer.
