The Topsham Fleet is based at Topsham Sailing Club at the head of the Exe Estuary just a couple of miles from the M5 junction 30 which gives ready access from a wide area.
The Exe Estuary is tidal with extensive areas of mud and sand visible at low water however there is a deep water channel which can be navigated with care in a dayboat at most states of the tide. At high tide the estuary provides a wide expanse of sheltered water giving ideal sailing conditions.
The Topsham Fleet sail mainly within the estuary where they hold regular racing events, and occasional excursions further afield beyond Exmouth some 6 miles to the south.
In addition to the fleet at Topsham there are both Devon Yawls and Devon Dayboats based at Exmouth, Starcross, and Lympstone sailing clubs.
