Championships > Introduction
Many visiting sailors have told us that Mount's Bay Sailing Club is one of the finest venues for a dinghy championship in the UK, if not the world.
The sailing takes place in the waters to the south and south-west of the clubhouse in picturesque Mount's Bay. Launching and recovery is relatively easy via the club slipway to a sheltered sandy beach; care should be exercised when leaving the beach as there are some rocks on either side - our club sailors will be happy to offer advice.
Non-sailors of all age groups are well catered for. Cornwall is famous for its golden beaches and beautiful bays, but the county has a great deal more to offer: there is a range of attractions, including: The Eden Project; Land's End; Geevor Tin Mine; Porthcurno Telegraph Museum; Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station; and The Minack Theatre, to name but a few. You may also take a day trip to the Isles of Scilly from Land's End airport.
Marazion and the local area offers accommodation of all types and has excellent restaurants and pubs, many specialising in fresh local seafood. Whether you are looking for a top class sailing event or an enjoyable family holiday Mount's Bay will be the place to be in Championship Week this year.
