Ideal weather conditions saw more than 30 sailors take to the water at Penzance Sailing Club for a brand new event entitled ‘Take a Friend Sailing’ evening on Tuesday 23rd August.
There was a full range of ages for the first-timers, the youngest being seven-year-old Daniel Atkinson who sailed with 13 year old Lloyd Williams in Lloyd’s new Mirror dinghy.
On the water crew organised safety cover and a balloon chase using the club’s new training RIB Sea Spray, part funded by Sport England.
As the sun went down the shore team provided soup and rolls for the sailors.
The event also gave the club an opportunity to show off its newly refurbished premises to the visitors.
