Both indoor and on-the-water sailing races feature in a fun-packed event to be held at Torpoint Mosquito Sailing Club in Marine Drive, Torpoint, to raise funds for local hospice, St Luke’s, on Friday and Saturday, September 16 and 17.

The event, part of the club’s 150 years anniversary celebrations, starts at 7.30pm on the Friday with indoor yacht racing when six wooden yachts will compete in six races sponsored by local businesses.

With lots of chances to win, this event is designed to be great fun for the whole family.

On Saturday morning, starting at 10am, the club will host a coffee morning with lots of home-made cakes, arts and crafts stalls, face painting and a tombola.

Saturday afternoon sees the sailing highlight of the weekend with an on-the-water race between yachts, dinghies and windsurfers.

In the evening there is free live music from Shaun (Fletch) Fletcher.

Raffle tickets will be on sale all weekend with the draw on Saturday night.

The club is open to all during the event and everyone is welcome.

The organisers, Sue Griffiths and Jenny Roberts, are hoping that the club will raise more than last year’s total of £2,744.63.
