The Sailing Club’s annual Prize Giving Ceremony was held on Saturday 29th October. The clubhouse filled well before the scheduled 7.30pm start and the evening began with the traditional slideshow containing the highlights of the previous sailing season. This year it also included footage of the National Championships and clips of Dinghy capsizes throughout the season caught on video.
During the prize giving at the end of the very successful National Redwing Championships (http://www.scillyredwings.co.uk/) in the Isles of Scilly on Friday 25th August 2016, Mr Adrian Symons of Penzance, was presented with a special trophy. This was for his long standing and continued valued contribution and excellence in all matters to do with sailing for well over 70 years.
The youth and junior sailors of Penzance Sailing Club were welcomed by a fresh, force 4, southerly breeze for their annual competition at the end of September. With ten brave sailors battling in the annual junior event; under 16’s for the Mary Wales Cup and the Under 18’s for the Cadet Cup – the Race Officer of the day being Adrian Symons. The schedule was to have two qualifying races followed by a final race to determine the winner of this year’s event.
