Club History

When Rear-Admiral Sir Edward Chichester, Bart., was appointed as the first Commodore of the Taw and Torridge Sailing Club in August 1905 the original Taw and Torridge One-Designs were built locally at a cost of £24 complete with sails. The club only became The North Devon Yacht Club after the Second World War. The club buildings used today were officially opened by Owen Aisher, President of the RYA, in April 1972. The full story of the Clubs history, up to 1986, can be found in the publication "I'm On Starboard" and a video tape has been produced, entitled 'North Devon Yacht Club Sailing in the thirties'.
