The Salcombe-Kingsbridge Estuary is almost an entirely marine system with no real river flowing through it and the little freshwater input comes from catchment runoff and small streams. The estuary supports some rare and unique habitats and species which has led to its designation as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Local Nature Reserve (LNR).
Sailing in Salcombe, sailing, activities on the water, sailing courses, children’s taster sessions, and private sailing lessons are available. Salcombe Dinghy Sailing is an accredited RYA Training Centre, RYA OnBoard Centre and RYA Sailability Centre. We provide informal and formal Sailing lessons, and RYA courses for children, adults, families, groups and local schools.
