Teign Corinthian Yacht Club

Welcome to the website for Teign Corinthian Yacht Club.

The club is based in Teignmouth in South Devon. The clubhouse is at the northern end of the promenade and commands sweeping views of the coastline from Dorset to Torbay.

The clubhouse is a purpose designed building and was constructed by the members to provide a permanent home for the club. Regular Club Nights and social events are held at the Eastcliff clubhouse which has bar and full catering facilities.

There is an active round-the-cans yacht racing fleet in the club and races are held every Wednesday evening in the summer with the races being started from the clubhouse. This also provides a very good vantage point to watch the racing. The club also has a very active dinghy section with dinghy sailing taking place at the club's second property at Coombe Cellars on the South bank of the River Teign estuary. Because of the sheltered nature of this location, dinghy racing takes place all year round. Training is a vital part of the club's activities encouraging new members and beginners to acquire and improve their sailing skills.

The club is an accredited RYA Training Centre. A wide range of yachting courses are also held. We have an active cadet section and have very close links to other youth organisations in the local area encouraging young people to take part in water-based activities.

However the paint dried quickly and proved itself impossible to remove from exposed skin! The…
