St Mawes Sailing Club was founded in 1920 and has functioned without interruption from that date, with the exception of the war years.
Today it is a vibrant club with around 1,800 members. Every year it provides numerous sailing opportunities – both for local people and for holiday visitors – including around sixty club races; championship events for at least half a dozen classes, both traditional and modern; several cruises-in-company to other local ports; and formal instruction and races for hundreds of children. Its magnificent clubhouse, which has stunning views of the start line and St Mawes Harbour, provides a comfortable and lively setting in which members and guests can meet socially.
Using a wonderful collection of photographs, Nigel Sharp tells the story of this remarkable club.
