Clubbing: Sailors, 15 Fore Street, Newquay, Cornwall

Saturday 07 December 1996
"Sailors", which boasted the longest queue, seemed the most enticing. Progress into the club is painfully slow but a well-placed chippie offered hot and greasy fortification against the robust Cornish weather.
Inside, Sailors is huge. The main dance floor on the lower section is dominated by a vast video screen relaying 100 MTV-style images per second.
The bare elements required for an alluring night are all in abundance: a friendly vibe, scores of people, together with generous helpings of alcohol and uplifting hard house.
Resident DJs skilfully keep the tempo high switching from handbag to R&B before serving up deep house at the end of the night.
