The Pentewan Sands Sailing Club is the Classes favourite National Championship venue. We have been there 12 times over the years with 2013 being the most recent. The club is located on a wide sandy beach which is east facing and hence protected from the prevailing South Westly winds. It is adjacent to a large self contained caravan and camping park which means sailors can walk from the caravan or tent to the sailing club and do not need to drive for the duration of the championships. The Club catamaran centric (mostly Dart 18s) and is very friendly.


If using satnav put PL26 6BX in as the destination. This will take you to Ocean Sports which is outside the entrance to the club. If you are prompted to drive down Porthpean Road from the A390 (junction below) don't do it as the road gets very narrow indeed and there are pirates lurking in hedges waiting to pick up bits of broken caravan motorhome or boat, a donation to the RNLI will be required for any boat that enters the village via the hill. That's provided the pirates haven't got them! Keep straight on the A390 in the direction of Truro until you get to a double roundabout where you will see Mevagissey signed on the left.




This is where you turn left just after McDonalds - this is Pentewan Road



About 3 miles down Pentewan road you will find a Garage (notice our fuel is very cheap!) after the Garage you will find the turning for the village on the left.



You will fit across this bridge just drive on the right on the approach - if the big beer lorry can get across you will.



This is Ocean Sports where you fill find a fine array of goodies, members (this includes you) will get a discount. As Miles who owns this place is running the bar best keep in with him! Opposite is the entrance to the car park at the back of which is our gate.



Turn into the car park and go through the gates which should be staffed by the duty troll from the club. In the absence of the troll ask for Miles in Ocean Sports if you buy enough kit from him he will let you in.



Keep driving until you get to the headland above the beach which is the boat parking area. Leave boat and come to bar where you will be able to purchase a well deserved beer and receive a warm welcome to Pentewan.
