Historical Details

Founded in:

Sailing in the 1890s was therefore an important facet of community life. Apart from a few steam pinnaces, sail and oar were the principal means of transport on the water in those days and particularly so for Torpoint people, many of whom earned their living from their sailing work boats by conveying goods or fishing. These boats with gaff rigs and heavy canvas sails must have created a very picturesque and busy scene on the river. No doubt the local community would have looked with interest and envy at the great yachts which were sailed into the Hamoaze from time to time before the turn of the century or indeed the yachts owned by the privileged few which raced from Plymouth as far a field as La Rochelle and the North Sea. Perhaps a taste for racing was acquired by local fishermen who supplemented their income by crewing on these boats.
