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.
The clubhouse has a large Lounge Bar with connecting training room and small conference area, as well as modern changing rooms suited to sailing and water sports needs. Located centraly in the town the clubhouse is an ideal venue for functions, celebrations and meetings
The Club, situated in the town of Marazion in west Cornwall, enjoys what is probably the finest location for sailing in the United Kingdom.
The Club has four adopted classes:
NATIONAL OSPREY – a 17’6″ high performance racing dinghy.
INTERNATIONAL LASER – a 13’10” single handed performance racing dinghy.
INTERNATIONAL MIRROR – a 10’10” racing and all purpose dinghy ideal for the younger generation and beginners.

Located on the edge of Mounts Bay in West Cornwall, our club is situated on some of the best sailing waters in the UK. With members of all ages and ambitions, we have a healthy mix from cruising yachts through to internationally competitive dinghies (and everything in between).
The focus of our sailing is on Monday and Thursday evenings as well as over the weekends from Easter to New Year.
Very friendly family oriented club with a full age range of members Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
We have a strong cruiser section, whose members not only cruise locally but also cross Channel and further afield. There is also a 9 month dinghy racing programme with series racing, special events and open meetings.
We’re one of the region’s leading sailing clubs providing leisure and competitive sailing. Dinghy classes include: Wayfarer Laser Splash Leader, Solo, Punt, Wanderer, 420, Enterprise, Phantom and Bittern classes.
We encourage class racing as much as possible but the diversity of boats means that most racing is on a handicap basis. For a class to qualify for its own fleet start there must be at least six registered boats and at present this applies to the Scorpion (15+) Streaker (12+) and Laser (6) classes.
We have a year-round programme of social events, including barbecues, bonfires and trips to external sailing events, but the heart of the club is sailing. We do our racing on Sundays and Thursday evenings, and we run training for members on weekday evenings. We also have a great Kids’ Club on Fridays, and a whole week of fun for the kids in August.
