Ilfracombe on the North coast of Devon, is one of the club's favourite watering holes.

It has

  • An excellent yacht club;
  • Great pubs;
  • Great takeaways.

The inner harbour dries, as does most of the outer harbour. Ilfracombe is great for bilge-keelers, though fin-keelers can take the wall. The anchorage in the deeper water is not so bad in most weather conditions - just make sure you leave room for the lifeboat and the commercial traffic.

Study a pilot book before attempting to use Ilfracombe, and make an effort to contact the harbour master.
