"There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. - Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

Ilfracombe yacht club

Welcome To Y Sail

Y-Sail is aimed at getting you the young persons who are based in and around the Ilfracombe area out on to the water.

If you are keen to sail or even if you are just wishing to have ago then we have fantastic facilities within Ilfracombe were you can learn to sail in toppers, pico’s and a laser 13.

Just some of our young sailors.

The Club is very keen for parents to get involved as shore based helpers, safety boat support or drivers and instructors if qualified – even if it is just helping to pull the boats up the slipway.

Don’t worry if you haven’t got any experience as there is always someone around to help and we can train you up!
