2015 Cruise to Fowey photos are now all on the Gallery. The trip was a fantastic boating experience amongst boating friends. We visited Salcombe, Bigbury Bay, River Yealm, Fowey, Mevagissey, Polperro, Plymouth and return via Salcombe to Dartmouth.

We don’t want to mention it BUT - Craning Out - 20th and 21st October: for the 'Application for Winter Storage and Craning'. We expect the boat park to be full this year, so please book asap - the closing date for applications is 28th August. Storage and Craning fees are the same as last year - despite the club incurring big increases in the cost of crane hire, rent and rates. Winter mooring is also available in the Mill Tail (cost £25/metre) - this may suit members who want to extend the boating season a little. 2015 Winter Storage & Craning Out Application Form is now available on the Boating Facilities page.

Fantastic Support from our TBA Membership. Thank you to all of you who donated cakes for the RNLI Dart Annual Fete on Thursday 6th Aug. It was a lovely sunny day and we all had lots of fun. We also made lots of money and significantly enhanced our profile in Dartmouth. Here are the results...The RNLI made a total of £2030 of which.....Cakes (Totnes Boating Association) made £251.45 (£181.00 for the donated cakes). It was a great effort by our membership and please understand that the RNLI led by Ed Featherstone (fundraising) really appreciate your help and support.

Regatta News Sun 23rd - What a fantastic day we had as this morning for some of us it was a first taking the helm of a Motorboat out at sea in clearing skies and calm flat seas and then in the afternoon we went out sailing with the wind and sea just prefect for a great sail - even though the crew of KT Jane seemed to think that they came in first. Well Its going to make for a very interesting sailing competition on Tuesday. Then today could not have turned out with better weather. Tomorrow we are off to the BBQ at Bow Creek.

Regatta News Mon 24th Yet another day of RAIN then Sun. We thought that at 11am  there was a window of dry weather but oh no we got very wet going to the BBQ, Val, Lesley & Alun had prepared a huge tasty feast for us inside Val’s House. Coming back to the pontoon the sun came out and we again enjoyed a great social all together on the pontoon.

The BIGGEST EVENT of the year for members to celebrate the clubs 60th Anniversary -Click here to see details

Regatta News - Well Thursday saw the return of Summer with a great days weather. Many members enjoyed a Treasure Hunt by dinghy in the morning which had us up and down the trots on the Kingswear side trying to solve the clues which for some found easy and others completely missed. In came the Guard Ship to loud hooting from it and all the boats around. The afternoon saw a race between 2 sailing teams - Steve, Lyn & Drew against Keith, Alex & Pip, which of course Steves team won easily BUT Keith's team had 2 hours of great sailing. Drinks, chatting & fireworks in the evening sun. Another great day.

Regatta News - Our last day at Regatta was spent in the sunshine with lots going on. After many years of the TBA  not entering the Regatta sailing races we say congratulations to Lyn, Steve & Keith for entering the 'White Sails, sailing race Saturday. Not sure how they got on but they were out a long time and I suspect that there was little wind.The Roast Dinner was as usual the very high standard and tasted fantastic with Chicken, roast pots, green beans, carrots, peas, ratatouille & nice homemade gravy.  This was followed by Strawberries & Cream. The flying display was just great and one of the best even with the Red Arrows missing - We had a Vulcan roaring around and a 20 minute display by a stunt flyer. A great firework display.
