Falmouth Classics

Falmouth Classics
Friday, June 17, 2016 - 09:00

Headed by the Falmouth All Weather and Inshore Lifeboats, and heralded with a flypast by the Search & Rescue Helicopter from RNAS Culdrose, the Falmouth Classics Parade of Sail & Power was the high point of a great weekend which brought together traditional yachts and working boats from this country and abroad.

From 100 ft Brixham Trawlers and Luggers to 14ft Looe Redwings, over 120 of them sailed, motored, or rowed in procession from off the Eastern Arm of Falmouth Docks, past a reviewing launch, to Pendennis Point, and across to the Eastern side of Carrick Roads, before dispersing to go racing or return home.

Three days of a relaxing rally of classic sailing craft and other traditional vessels, including pilot gigs and motor boats. Three days of rallying, enjoying the company of others and gentle but competitive racing.
