Our Club

Totnes Boating Association welcomes new members, visiting boat owners, guests, families and dogs on leads to our Clubhouse. Our clubhouse bar is normally open for members every Friday and Sunday, but now has restricted hours due to Covid 19. . Our club also has a very active social calendar including; barbecues, walks, charity events, theme nights, dinners and dances.  We also have many boating activities, cruises, visiting other harbours, bbq's down the river and of course the Dartmouth Regatta.


In addition to members boats members have access to various other craft at the moment this includes sit-on-kayaks and Canadian canoes. Stand Up Paddleboards are planned for 2021.


Totnes Boating Association is at the head of navigation on the beautiful River Dart, in the heart of historic Totnes with access to picture postcard villages, waterside pubs and cafes, creeks, beaches and, of course, Dartmouth and the breathtaking South Hams coastline beyond.

The club has 55 moorings on the River Dart for members use.  There is winter storage ashore for members' boats (doubling as a large summer car park), tender storage and slipway.  However you do not need to have a mooring in Totnes to be a member of our club, as many members have their boats elsewhere on the Dart or moored at other harbours in Devon.

The TBA web site strongly encourages the wearing of lifejackets at all boating boating activities. Buoyancy aids are encouraged for all forms of on the water activities including canoeing/kayaking and boarding etc.

Lifejackets save lives – all the evidence indicates that a correctly fitted lifejacket will significantly improve your chances of survival if the unforeseen or unfortunate occurs.  Not only will a lifejacket keep you afloat and allow you to adopt the HELP position that minimises heat loss (Heat Escape Lessening Position), it should turn an unconscious casualty to keep the airway above the water. 

DO NOT FORGET to regularly check your lifejacket as cylinders can become loose or activators out of date PLUS inflate manually to ensure all is ok.

All forms of boating including Sailing, Motorboating, Canoeing & Kayaking are “Assumed risk” - “Water activities” that may carry attendant risks. Members should be aware of and accept these risks, and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.
