The Club’s Annual Report and Accounts for 2017 can be found here and on the Membership Page
Welcome to the SGBA Website. Our 500+ members will find here everything they need to make the most of their membership. Prospective members will, I hope, find out enough to encourage them to join us.
The SGBA was founded in the 1970s and for four decades has given masses of fun and pleasure to thousands of adults and youngsters who venture out on the beautiful waters of the River Dart in this lovely part of South Devon. Following a successful development project 2014 – 2016 we now have fabulous facilities at Mill Point to enable and support even more fun on the water for our sailors, kayakers, canoeists and rowers.
The Club is in a superb, but unusual location. We offer:
The unusual bits about our location? Just two: vehicular access is across a tidal foreshore – we cope well enough; and we are required to limit activities at Mill Point to daylight hours only – so we use venues in the village for evening social events.
The SGBA is typical of clubs which the RYA says do best these days: embracing all types of boating, run by enthusiasts and with up-to-date facilities. I’m honoured to serve as Commodore for two years from March 2017. I welcome contact from current members and prospective members - send me an email. Prospective members will find lots of information on the membership page. Then come and visit, weekends are best – email me first so I can arrange someone to meet you.
It was a wet and almost windless day on Saturday 16 September but nonetheless a good number of sailors and spectators turned out for the SGBA Regatta that afternoon. 18 dinghies took part in two races, with a Senior and a Junior class in each race.
Stoke Gabriel Tides
The annual booklet of Stoke Gabriel tide tables is now available from Stoke Gabriel Stores (Roz’s) and the River Shack, as well as at SGBA events.
More details on the Weather and Tides page.
We are on Whats App
We learned from the Survey earlier this year that many members prefer to sail or paddle when others will be on the river, rather than on their own. So we have set up a What’s App group through which members will get alerts when others are going afloat and through which those in the group can make arrangements with each other.
To join the group, text your name and mobile number to: River Lovejoy on 07523 544986.
