Learn to sail on the Helford

Learning to sail is a great way to learn a new skill AND address any water fears that you or your child might have. We run holiday courses at Easter, May half term and throughout the summer school hols, or private lessons for any ages on Fridays and Saturdays from May to September.

Storm damage at Porth Sawsen

Like many foreshores along the Helford, Porth Sawsen received a battering by high winds and heavy seas overnight. The boat compound was badly damaged, though most of the fleet remains in one piece. Anyone able to volunteer help to restore order would be gratefully received. Contact Mike on 07939 711328

Helen and Rowan

We are delighted to welcome Helen Bishop-Stephens our new Fundraising Manager. Helen has a background in the arts including fundraising and marketing. Since returning to Cornwall she has led a Heritage Lottery-funded restoration project at Harvey’s Foundry Trust in Hayle and a marketing and events programme for the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub at Cornwall Chamber of Commerce. She grew up crewing mirror and wayfarer dinghies on Restronguet for her sailing-enthusiast parents. Now that her children are showing an interest in being on the water, she vows to let them hold the tiller. Well, sometimes.

Rowan Blewett is Trusts Administrator and has held posts in community fundraising and events at Cornwall Hospice Care and Shelterbox. She is a keen sportsperson who enjoys netball, snowboarding and hiking. She can often be found at the Helford retrieving her dog from the water.

If you’d like to get involved with fundraising, we’d love to hear from you. Contact helen@hrcst.org.uk or phone 01326 250765

Floating Classroom

A big thank you to everyone who took the trouble to vote for HRCST’s entry in the Aviva Community Fund competition last year.  We applied for £25,000 to build a floating classroom and we managed to get 4,198 votes.  We didn’t win but we gained a huge amount of positive publicity from this national, high profile competition and we plan to try again next time!

Budock Vean Golf Club

The Captains of Budock Vean Golf Club - Mo Salomé and John Rule - pictured here (photo by Andrea Oakes) chose HRCST as their Charity of the Year for 2017 and on 11 December presented Charles Richardson, co-chairman, with a cheque for £3,907.  The members collected this fabulous amount from a variety of events during the year.
