Flushing Sailing Club is an amazing, flourishing, sailing club running the best racing in the port of Falmouth.
Founded in 1921 for the benefit of Flushing residents, the club is situated on the New Quay commanding stunning and panoramic views of the inner Falmouth Harbour and the reaches of the Penryn River.
The club has a long history of providing exhilarating and competitive racing for yachts in and around the Carrick Roads as well as coastal and offshore events. A strong involvement with the Sunbeam class during the early years continues. We enjoy the full support and participation of the Falmouth Working Boats Association.
With their iconic topsails, the working boats and the gaffers are a symbol of the region and continue a traditional form of sailing. But the club supports contemporary yachts too, providing some competitive and friendly racing for many classes.
Most racing takes place in the Roads and Falmouth Bay, usually finishing on the club line (an imaginary line between ourselves and RCYC). During the summer we can expect around 50 boats racing on a Tuesday evening, and an amazing number of yachts setting sail for their Saturday afternoon races. They make a fine sight as they come up the harbour to the finish line.
Members are joined together by their love of sailing, but being a visitor friendly club, non-members are also invited to share our facilities on Tuesday evening and Saturday afternoon racing throughout the season.
Flushing Sailing Club was honoured to host the main prize giving for the whole of Falmouth week during August 2015. It was a day to remember for all competing sailors and families.
And we are inordinately proud that Pete Goss MBE consented to become an Honorary Life Member of the Club, alongside Bill Hunt and Nessa Simcock. And in 2016, Harold Martin also became a Life Member.
We are a friendly sailing club and always welcome new members. If you would like to join, please download the membership form using the link below. Or come along any Tuesday evening, or on a Saturday afternoon through the sailing season. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome. Download Membership Form (pdf).
David Jinks, Commodore of the Club from 1984 to 1986, died on January 1st 2016, aged 85.
