POW Week 2017

13 Apr POW Week 2017


Situated on The Camel Estuary about 5 miles to the west of Wadebridge and opposite the picturesque fishing port of Padstow. The Clubhouse has a first floor clubroom with panoramic view over the Camel Estuary with a well stocked bar. Real ale is always available with the club speciality being the locally brewed and aptly named Sharp’s ‘Doom Bar’ as well as other beers and lagers.

For major regattas and for simple beach launching competitors boats are berthed a few minutes along the beach near the Rock Lifeboat station






Sailing Area

The diagram illustrates the main sailing areas for racing in Padstow Bay


Padstow Harbour Commissioners have recently published a new navigation aid video filmed from a drone and this gives some footage of both the areas shown on the diagram and also the estuary waters: http://www.padstow-harbour.co.uk/navigate-padstow.html

The sailing area conditions vary greatly according to wind direction and strength. Water depth over these course areas varies between 12 and 35 metres. On the flood tide the current moves from SW into the estuary. Both Stepper Point and Pentire head can be accessed for viewing the racing although a strong pair of binoculars as well as walking shoes would be advisable!
