Fleets‎ > ‎


Come winter or summer, the boat park is a hive of activity.  In winter, the cruiser fleet are busy fettling their craft ready for a long, and hopefully trouble-free, summer cruising season from the beautiful North Devon coast to far flung ports of Cornwall, Wales, Ireland and beyond.

Introducing Clovelly's Yardarm Club


Click the link outlining our harbour events for the year. There is no extra charge for these days so you can provide your crew with a day with extra to remember for just the harbour dues. Do contact the Harbour Master, Stephen Perham, beforehand on 07975 501830, in case inside berthing is restricted. There is no charge either for the shower facility, which has just had a complete renovation  Enjoy!

The Yardarm Club offers a package of special concessions for you at the Red Lion and New Inn that is only available to selected yacht clubs. There are four groups of benefits and no joining fee:
1. Beer: buy 5 pints and get a 6th free anytime.

In the Red Lion Harbour Bar have a two course dinner from the bar menu and then be treated to a free pudding. The New Inn specialises in providing a full English breakfast for only £7.50 (T: 01237 431303). Then for lunch and supper buy two bar meals and the cheaper one will be charged at half price only.

Application Form

Your Committee has recently voted that the Club should join the Bristol Channel Yachting Association (formerly the Bristol Channel Yachting Conference).  

They publish a handbook of Guide to Yachting and Cruising in the Bristol Channel - The Blue Book, which costs just £8.  They are looking for more information on pilotage and photos of the estuary at low water.  By contributing our knowledge of the Bar and the Estuary, we may help to encourage more intrepid sailors to visit us.  If you have useful information that could be presented to them, please let the Secretary know.  

Details of other benefits will appear here shortly.
