The best Classic Boat Regatta comes to Falmouth in June. The highlight of the regatta is the Parade of Sail & Power, as competitors parade out into Carrick Roads under full sail on the Sunday morning.
The camaraderie of the best Classic Boat Rallies comes to Falmouth. The three-day event will be supported by Falmouth Harbour Commissioners who are celebrating the 150th anniversary of Falmouth becoming a Trust Port formed by an act of Parliament this year.
Falmouth Classics, which has had more than 190 participating vessels since 2017, is one of the largest heritage and classic boating events in the UK. Classic boats designed or built before 1971, from many parts of the country, take part in this Classics event, with boats built as long ago as 1882 and lovingly restored taking their place alongside many more launched before the Second World War and other more modern versions of the classic designs.
The highlight of the regatta is the Parade of Sail and Power. The boats will Parade out of the inner harbour and into Carrick Roads on Sunday 13th June, at 10.30am, making a magnificent spectacle of Pilot Cutters, Working Boats, and other traditional craft under full sail.
The parade can be seen to best advantage from Pendennis Point, Pendennis Castle, Castle Drive and Trefusis Point. The Mayor of Falmouth will take the salute from a Fal River Launch moored off the castle.
