Paignton Sailing Club has fleets of Fireballs, Lasers, Toppers, Albacores, and Laser 2000 & 4000 plus a variety of craft in the handicap fleet. Each year the club runs a couple of weekend open events and the national championship of a major association.

The club is also host to Paignton Regatta and provides a summer and winter race programmes for people who enjoy getting out on the water and indulging in a bit of friendly competition.

Racing takes place in the bay usually no more than a mile or so from the harbour on Sunday mornings and on Wednesday evenings (during the summer months). In addition there are special interest races such as the Orestone and Round the Bay race and those during the August Regatta season.

Torbay, which hosted the sailing for the 1948 Olympic Games, is a superb sailing centre. It is almost tide less, sheltered from prevailing Westerlies and blessed with its own sunny micro-climate.

If you are without a boat you can hire one of the club's toppers, Picos, Laser or the new RS Vision for a few pounds.

The club is RYA recognised and runs a variety of courses for all levels from beginner to the advanced sailor.
