Renewals for 2023-2024 are now due.

A good turnout of local volunteers for the relaunch of a Jumbo to start the season.

The use of our boats is limited to the membership but the good news is that this only costs £40 per annum and is open to absolutely everyone. No previous experience is required. Also, as we’re now approaching the end of the season, members joining from September 1st will not need to renew until April 2025!

To join us, please complete our MEMBERSHIP FORM which includes various payment options.

Renewals: Please do not use the Membership Form (Jotform) unless your contact details have changed.

We know auto-renewals by direct debit are unpopular, so please help us to keep them at bay by setting up a standing order of your own via internet banking.

Our details: ST.IVES JUMBO ASSOCIATION, sort code: 54-41-16, a/c 46530614 and remember to put your name as a reference so we know who it’s from.

COVID 19. Despite the obvious difficulties, we have continued to provide a sailing experience for those of our members able to reach us since the outbreak, even welcoming several new sailing members into the fold. Covid restrictions have highlighted just how beneficial our activities are for mental wellbeing. Our boats have continued to grace the harbour and enrich the St.Ives experience for residents and visitors alike. We are fortunate in this respect, for many similar sailing organisations have found themselves effectively shut down.

But there’s no denying: Covid 19 has seriously affected our income and our ability to fundraise whilst our annual expenses continue to rise. Without your support our future will be unsustainable. Please give what you can to HELP US KEEP THE JUMBOS SAILING


Members wishing to sail who live within easy reach of St.Ives will be notified of planned sailing dates via our Whats App group which they can then book on a first come first served basis. Priority will be given to members visiting from further afield who should advise Scott on 07941058509 of the date and duration of their visit.

The Cock Bank (the sand bar across the harbour entrance) has increased this year which restricts sailing to within 2 hours either side of HW
