Corinthian Sailing Club

Corinthian Sailing Club

We sail in the spectacular amphitheatre of Babbacombe Bay. The beaches of Oddicombe and Babbacombe are overlooked by the high grassy esplanade of Babbacombe Downs. Our beach clubhouse can be reached by road or more scenically by the Babbacombe Cliff Railway.

The sailing waters are usually calm as the prevailing south-westerlies blow over the Downs across the bay, however, Oddicombe can become a ‘high energy’ beach when easterly winds generate more wavy conditions.

Our sailing season starts in early Spring, and we run several trophy series races between April and September, with individual trophy races along the way. We also mix up our racing with social sailing sessions, improvement training and the occasional passage race and picnic cruise. Club sailing is held on Tuesday evenings, Sunday mornings and also Friday evenings for Junior Sailing.
