The National Scorpion Association, alongside The Hornet Association and Penzance Sailing Club, have made the decision to cancel this year's National Championships, due to the ongoing impact of Covid19.

The event was set to be one of the biggest sailing events of the year, with 100+ Scorpions and 25 Hornets entered, great sponsorship in place and a fantastic partnership between The Scorpions, The Hornets and Penzance Sailing Club.

Having built such a fantastic partnership, The Scorpion Class is delighted to announce, in partnership again with the Hornet Class, that they will still be going to Penzance Sailing Club to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The National Scorpion Association and to hold the joint Scorpion and Hornet National Championships, but in 2021!

With 100+ Scorps and 25+ Hornets already entered it will be not only one of the biggest sailing events in the UK in 2021, but also the best.

If you want to know more about the event please contact Class Chairman Chris Yates on or Class Secretary Steve Walker on or Hornet Class Chairman Dave Edge on
