The Club is situated in Exmouth, close to the marina/harbour at the mouth of the beautiful Exe estuary and is the largest sailing club on the Exe. The Club encourages all forms of sailing. It is possible to sail from the club at all states of the tide, although skill is required to cope with fast flowing tides which occur at certain times in the mouth of the estuary. We have active Comet Trio, RS 200 and Laser fleets.
We also have a handicap fleet with many classes including RS 400s, RS Visions and Enterprises to name a few. Exe Sailing Club members cruise the world, but more often the English Channel and the ports of Devon and Cornwall. By its very nature cruising is a “get away from it all” activity but members meet regularly in distant ports by arrangement or good fortune. Members frequently require crews to accompany them.
