Falmouth Week 2014
Falmouth Week 2014 will see 450 yachts taking part in the south west’s largest sailing event and Visit Falmouth are pleased to be a sponsor.
Starting with a fleet of 150 Falmouth Classics racing will begin out in the pretty Carrick Roads and Falmouth bay. Not only are these some of the oldest and most beautiful yachts in the world but with the backdrop of green fields, St Anthony’s head and two magnificent Castles even if you aren’t a great lover of sailing then the view will be enough to captivate you.
Racing continues with seven days of racing to include the larger super yachts of the Bay Fleet and the smaller yachts including Falmouth working boats, Dayboats, cabin yachts and many more in the Carrick Fleet.
The traditional long Champagne Race for the Bay Fleet takes place out in the bay with each class receiving a bottle of champagne after at the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.
Shore side entertainment is equally exciting with the famous Falmouth Marine Band and Carnival, Music on Event Square, including Toyah and East17, the popular and entertaining Dragon boats and of course the spectacular Red Arrows and grand firework display.
To top it all off we are set to have a beautiful dry hot summer! Ready to Visit Falmouth? Take a look at available accommodation including, hotels, guest houses, self-catering and campsite’s right here
