Falmouth Week -
August 11th - 19th 2012
Dates for Falmouth Week 2012 are Saturday 11th August to Sunday 19th August.
Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week has grown into the largest sailing regatta in the south west with more than 450 yachts racing over eight days, and a lively programme of shoreside events.
The week starts with the Falmouth Classics, which sees 150 classic yachts racing in Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay. This is followed by six days of match racing for keelboats, traditional craft and dinghies in the waters off Falmouth Bay, the Carrick Roads and the harbour. Wednesday is Champagne Day, a race for the big yachts with a 25 mile coastal course finishing in the inner harbour, whilst smaller boats race in the Carrick Roads.
The best vantage points are: Pendennis and St Mawes Castles, St Anthony Head, Castle Drive and Pendennis Point, Trefusis Point and Flushing. To view the dinghy racing, walk along from Mylor Yacht Harbour towards Restronguet Sailing Club.
Running alongside the sailing regattas is an exciting programme of shoreside entertainment in venues throughout the town.
