One becomes three at Falmouth Classics

The classic boat bandwagon is gathering pace, dinghies or yachts, classic sailing is on a roll. Latest event to announce an increase in interest is the Falmouth Classics regatta, as the traditional one-day race becomes three days of dedicated classic boat racing with a new link to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival.

The new-look Falmouth Classic Regatta will take place from 14 to 16 June 2013 with crews being welcomed into the port on the Thursday evening for racing on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 2012 was a great year for Falmouth which saw the J Class Regatta, the Pendennis Cup, and Sir Ben Ainslie winning the Finn Gold Cup among other events and continues to attract world-class sailing events.
