We have just completed the rather daunting task of replacing our Clubhouse. From a rather unimpressive leaky single-storey building on the historic New Quay to an attractive building which should make the most of its position on the sunny side of the Penryn River and Falmouth Harbour and be a credit to the harbour, Flushing, the Club itself, and the many sponsors, donors and club members who contributed to its creation.
The project to replace the Clubhouse has generated a great deal of enthusiasm, and also caused the Club to closely examine its relationship with the local community, ashore and afloat. No elitism here, we want to share widely.
The club has a long history of providing exhilarating and competitive racing for yachts in and around the Carrick Roads as well as coastal and offshore events. A strong involvement with the Sunbeam class during the early years persists, as does the full support of the Falmouth Working Boats Association.
Racing is started from a committee boat situated in the Carrick Roads for evening races, and from the club start/finish line on Saturdays. Spectacular photo opportunities exist from the quay during the finishing sequence as the yachts can be followed up the harbour to a grand finish off the club line. Racing is provided for numerous classes of yachts including Multihulls, Sunbeams, IRC rated, Gaffers, Working Boats and a competitive White Sail fleet. A launch is provided throughout the season to run crews to and from their yachts.
