Tall Ships 2021

Tuesday 17th – Thursday 19th August

A fleet of tall ships from around the world will arrive in the historic port of Falmouth, as part of the Tall Ships Magellan-Elcano 500 Series 2021.

Falmouth has been chosen as the Race Start Partner for the Magellan-Elcano Tall Ships race taking place in August 2021.

The Falmouth Tall Ships event will run from 17th – 19th August 2021. The parade of sail will be Thursday 19th August, time TBC. The Tall Ships fleet will race from a point in Falmouth Bay to A Coruna in Spain.

Subject to ship arrivals, timings, and weather, it is hoped visitors will be able to take tripper boats out into the Carrick Roads to view these magnificent ships at close quarters. Alongside the spectacle of ships will be plenty of shoreside activities ranging from a large carousel to markets, music and more.

There will also be a packed schedule of onshore activities, culminating in a memorable Parade of Sail event on Thursday 19th August; all subject, of course, to Covid-19 guidelines at the time.
This is a truly fantastic spectacle, and one not to be missed. It can be viewed from several coastal vantage points in and around Falmouth, including our very own Bream Cove.
