Welcome to Kingsbridge Estuary Boat Club

We are a family friendly club run for the benefit of users of the Kingsbridge Estuary whose interests range from dayboats to canoes and SUPs, from sailing boats to RIBs, from bird-watching to fishing, with the aim of bringing together all members of the boating community. The Club is keen to involve and represent the widest possible spectrum of water users. It is recognised as a consultee by Salcombe Harbour Authority.

WHERE WE MEET

All Club meetings are now being held in the ground floor meeting room of the Regal Club, Kingsbridge.

Please refer to our Calendar and our regular email Newsletters, as well as the general News section of this site for more details.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership is open to all. Please complete the Membership form on this site. Family membership covers up to two parents plus all children under 18 resident at an address so please provide all relevant details. The membership only confers a single vote at General Meetings. The membership year mirrors the calendar year.

As the Club has no premises and is run entirely by an unpaid volunteer committee the membership subscription is very low-£10 a year until the end of 2021 at least. As a result, and to avoid complexity, there is no apportionment of the subscription if you join part way through the membership year.

COMMITTEE

Contact details for officers and committee members can be found on this site. Please contact the appropriate person (or if in doubt the Secretary) with any queries you may have. In the same way, if you have any positive suggestions for improvements to our programme or activities please offer them to us.

WEBSITE

 As we have no premises this site is our main source of contact with our members, our “Clubhouse”, and we hope you can locate all the information you require using the Menu at the head of this page. You will find links to club information like our Constitution, retailers offering membership benefits, club branded clothing, as well as to a variety of other organisations.
