Falmouth Classics regatta gets bigger and better as the traditional one-day race joins forces with the world renowned Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, and becomes three days of dedicated classic boat racing with a new link to the Festival, promising timeless entertainment on and off the water.
The new-look Falmouth Classics takes place from June 14th to 16th 2013 with crews being welcomed into the port on the Thursday evening for racing on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday
The organisers look forward to welcoming all competitors to Falmouth Classics 2013. This unique event is run in the spirit of a rally, with three days of Racing, a Parade of Sail and Power, a Reception at the Falmouth Art Gallery and a Dinner at the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, as well as access to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival. Racing takes place in Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay.
The regatta is open to all boats of 60ft and under, which are either classic sailing yachts or are of more modern construction but built in the classic spirit – and to larger boats by agreement with the organisers.
But you don’t have to race. The Parade of Sail and Power is open to Motor Boats and Rowing Boats and any other classics hulls, powered by what ever means they were designed for.
