In the late 1960’s and early 70’s Spencer Field, an ex President of the Sailing club, took some unique cine film footage of the club and its sailing activities. These films lay in a box in his son’s garage for some 30 years. They were finally re discovered and professionally put onto DVD by the John Adam’s renowned Penzance based SSS films company. Read more

A superb turnout of twenty one dinghies signed in for the sixth sail of the Frostbite series.
Following the challenging conditions of the previous weekend – this Sunday the sailors rigged their boats in a beautiful sunny afternoon with a steady Northerly wind Force 2-3.
We watched the forecast with some foreboding last week. The lead up to our first annual Pirate Pursuit race threatened sporting, even ominous conditions and yet, on Sunday, a gathering of 28 boats braved the elements to head out on the course set by Race Officer Mike Winiberg. An olympic course in front of the Promenade then over to windward- leeward marks nearer the club tested the endurance over the two and a half hour race.
“Wow” is the only way to describe the exhilarating sail for the first ever Penzance Pirate Pursuit today! Report to follow later in the week – but huge congratulations to the competitors, and all the volunteers that enabled the event to run so smoothly in rather challenging conditions! Special thanks to Vice Commodore Colin Stephens for all of his hard work organising the event and also to our sponsors for the fantastic prizes. The winners received Gul vouchers and also prizes from local company Nautigal who also provided many spot prizes for other competitors
