Some key Years for TMSC
TMSC members have sailed around the world, to Greece, America, the
Balkans, Spain, the Azores, Portugal, Gibralter, Canary Isles, Ireland, to
name a few, and deserve much praise.
Some cruising took place almost from the inception of the club. Club boats
sailed to Cargreen for an annual Strawberry Feast, paid for by the
Commodore – very popular!
In the 1960's Club boats were cruising to Guernsey, Alderney in 22 foot
boats – considered large. Tréguier and Roscoff were discovered and the
club began regularly crossing the English Channel, (before the days of
electronics). Then Tréguier became a favourite annual event.
1983 TMSC chartered the “Falmouth Packet” to take 15 children with 4 adult
club members to the Bay of Biscay, sailing to Douarnenez and Belle Ile.
1984 Commodore, Mike Morgan, linked TMSC with a Breton club at
Plouguerneau and about half a dozen boats sailed over to Correjou Bay (not
then found in the pilot guide books). They were met off Ile Vierge to be
guided in through the rocks by the locals.
1988 Combined Pursuit race and twinning visits with Saltash Sailing Club.
1990 Club race to Plouguerneau.
1998 Ray Day led a fleet to Correjou Bay, then on to Bénodet and the
2000 18 French boats came from Bénodet and Plouguerneau and were installed
at Jupiter Point for 4 days, with high jinks at the club. Along with 20 of
our boats the combined fleet of 38 sailed to Falmouth, Penzance and the
Club cruises to Fowey remain popular.
