About Torpoint Mosquito Sailing Club – sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving
Torpoint Mosquito Sailing Club is a friendly family water sports club with
dinghy and yacht racing, cruising, windsurfing and scuba-diving sections. It
welcomes new members.
The club was founded in 1891 and has a long history of sailing – from historic
Mosquito class boats through to modern dinghies and yachts with regular racing,
cruising and an active social section. In recent years it has expanded to
include windsurfing and scuba diving sections. In 2013 it secured £40,000
funding from Sport England and the Lottery Fund as part of the ”Inspired
Facilities” legacy after the London 2012 Olympics which allowed it to update its
changing rooms, provide disabled access and new workshop and storage facilities
serving all the water-sports run at the club.
The club is on the banks of the
Tamar just below the Torpoint Ferry. Sailing can take place at all states of the
tide. Run by volunteers, with low membership fees, training, a good choice of
club dinghies for those that do not own their own boat, try-dives and regular
windsurf sessions, water sports are accessible to all at Torpoint Mosquito
