Starcross Yacht Club

On the 8th July 1772, Lord Courtenay with his friend Sir Lawrence Palk of Haldon, along with twenty seven other members of the nobility, gentry and clergy formed the “Starcross Club”.

Sailing activities of the Starcross Club have been well documented, recorded between 11th August 1775 to 30th November 1912 in twenty known articles printed in the then “Exeter Flying Post”. These articles recounted a ‘Fete Marine’ held under the auspices of the Starcross Club and arranged by William, Viscount Courtenay (1768 –1835). Subsequent regattas of a similar nature were held regularly and reported in the “Flying Post” until it ceased publication early last century.
