General FAQs


What facilities are there for my family?

We keep a selection of toys for children in the social area, and there is a baby changing facility in the disabled toilet/shower. Children under 14 should not use the pool table.

What if I am disabled?

For disabled members access is provided to the clubhouse via a specialised access ramp at one end of the property. There is a disabled toilet for use when the clubhouse is open. At other times, there is a disabled public toilet within 100m of the clubhouse.

Who owns the Clubhouse?

The clubhouse is owned by the club; the site is leased from South Hams District Council.

What about parking on the clubhouse site?

In order to allow access for dinghies, parking on the clubhouse site is not permitted except during specific events. At the front of the clubhouse the public road has double yellow lines, but can be used by persons with a disabled parking permit. All parking is at entirely at owner’s risk.

What about parking in the boat park?

The Boat Park opposite the clubhouse is available for car parking (not caravans or camper vans) during the months when the boats are afloat. There is no additional charge for parking. Parking should not obstruct remaining boats, trailers or other cars. All parking is at entirely at owner’s risk.

Is there a dress-code in the Clubhouse?

Everyday clothes may be worn at the majority of events and normal club days/evenings. A few events will be publicised with advice of any specifically requested dress code. Dirty overalls and boots should be removed before entering the main room.

What insurance does the TBA hold?

The club has insurance for its own property and public liability insurance. It does not have insurance covering injury to members or damage to members’ property, except where negligence is proven.

Does the TBA support charities?

Yes. Each year the Commodore nominates a charity, usually a local one, that will receive profits from a number of social events that are run during the year, such as the quiz night. Previous charities have included: Devon Air Ambulance; Sailability (sailing for the disabled); Chernobyl Children’s Fund.
