Welcome to Cargreen Yacht Club

"The best little yacht club on the Tamar"

We are one of the friendliest sailing clubs on the River Tamar on the Cornwall side, with thriving cadet and dinghy sections with deepwater swinging moorings and some shallow mooring which are available just two miles upstream from the Tamar bridges and five miles from Plymouth.

Welcome to our website

I hope you will find all you need to know about our club on our website whether you’re a long standing or a prospective member. We try to make this website one of the best, most complete and up to date small boating club sites.

The layout and main menu of the website has changed slightly whilst I was updating the filenames and structure. The latest changes are highlighted in the box above. Recent additions appear in the top of the left hand column. In the right hand, are links to the adverts for members’ boating stuff.

The social and sailing programme will appear shortly.
Tony Head is planning a “White Sail” racing programme and the Cadets are hoping to invigorate the dinghy racing.
The contact details for the Officers and Managers of the Club are in the Contacts Page.

I am always looking for News items and Photos and please let me know if there are any improvements to or errors in the website.

Fair winds, tides and good sailing.
