Welcome To Starcross Fishing & Cruising Club
A warm welcome to all fishermen, and women. SFCC fishing section caters for members, chiefly in boats, wishing to fish our local waters of Lyme Bay and South Devon areas.
Welcome to the cruising section of The Starcross Fishing and Cruising Club. We like to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy cruising in our beautiful local waters, and extended areas.
The Club organises a series of events throughout the year, ranging from Speciality Meals, Discos, BBQ’s, Bar Draws and impromptu ‘get togethers’, Annual Gala Night and Festive celebrations,
Here at SFCC we welcome new members to our club who are active in water based activities across the spectrum of boating pursuits. We regret that we are unable to provide purely social membership.
SFCC is committed to member training and is a certified RYA Training Centre. Courses run include; Day Skipper, Yachtmaster, Essential Navigation, VHF, First Aid, Diesel Engine, and Powerboat 1 & 2.
The club offers a range of 24/7 facilities to it’s members based around the historic Brunel Tower that dominates the shoreline at Starcross on the western side of the River Exe Estuary,
We are a community based sports and leisure boating club located on the western shores of the Exe Estuary in Starcross, just south of Exeter in Devon. We are the custodians of a grade 1 historic listed building, Brunel Tower, c1847, built originally as a pumping house for the South Devon Railways revolutionary Atmospheric Railway. The system was designed by the great Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
As our name suggests we cater for wide range of boating interests. Our very successful boat fishing section is well supported and caters for a wide variety of craft from small dinghies through to large diesel powered craft. Our extensive cruising fleet can be found visiting the local ports of Lyme bay to the farthest reaches of the oceans.
We operate programmes to suit all our interest groups and ability levels. The diversity of our members’ boating interests really is one of our greatest strengths.

Sharing expertise and experience amongst members
At SFCC we are friendly and informal. We also know that if you’re new to boating it’s often helpful to learn from people who are a bit more experienced. That’s why we hold Friday Forums throughout the winter (when we aren’t using our boats) to learn new methods or just hear a talk about an interesting topic.
The ‘closed season’ winter / spring programme of events for 2023, organised by Steve Cowell our Fishing Secretary, is now complete.
More dates to be confirmed soon.
Any enquiries or suggestions for future forums should be directed to: email@example.com
