2020 marked the 60th Anniversary of the launch of the very first Scorpion dinghy in 1960! This momentous event definitely happened in Cornwall, from the beach at Porthpean Sailing Club near St Austell we believe. Unfortunately logistics and other factors prevented the fleet from returning to our spiritual ‘home’ this year for the ‘Diamond Pirate’ Nationals so we’ve secured another quality venue close by at Penzance.

The Covid-19 pandemic then exacerbated issues and ultimately curtailed our 2020 Scorpion events programme BUT we are thrilled to announce that we will be holding our National Championships at Penzance Sailing Club in 2021. The confirmed dates are Sunday 15 through Friday 20 August 2021 so start planning now!

Further updates from Nationals Coordinator as and when available.
