Falmouth Classics features three days of enjoyable racing and a spectacular Parade of Classic Boats and the Small Classic Boat Parade. Since it began, in 1987, Falmouth Classics has steadily grown to be one of the largest Classic sailing events in the UK.
Falmouth is recognised as having some of the best sailing waters in the world in the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay. There are also many vantage points for spectators to view the events which take place in the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay. Over the last few years the Port and it’s yacht and sailing clubs have hosted many major events, such as the ”J” Class Regatta, Finn Gold Cup, Pendennis Cup, and the 2014 and 2023 Tall Ships Regattas, the beginning of the Golden Globe event in 2018 as well as the start and finish of the 2023 AZAB (Azores and Back Race) and many other National and International meetings.
The organisers look forward to the 37th year with all the usual activities both on and off the water together with a fleet of steam boats and of course the Falmouth International Shanty Festival.
