Cornwall Sailing Clubs
Looe Sailing Club was founded in 1934 and soon established itself as one of the leading sailing clubs in the South West of England, producing numerous top quality sailors, competing locally in some of the most popular dinghy classes in the UK.
Over the years, youth sailing and regular well organised training programmes have attracted sailing families from the town and surrounding area.
Having hosted a number of Redwing National Championships the club in 1969 hosted the Enterprise National Championships for the first time, since 1984 the club has hosted over 50 Championships including National, European and World Championships. In 1997 the club hosted the championships for the RS 200, RS400 and RS600 fleets with a total of 180 boats on the three courses. In 1998 the club had the privilege of introducing The Princess Royal to the club when they hosted the RYA UK Youth Championships.
