Summer in Cornwall is always a wonderful time, but there are some dates that are extra special, thanks to the exciting range of events and festivities that are organised throughout the county. 22nd – 24th June is one such weekend. The seaside town of Falmouth plays host to two fantastic events that provide fun and entertainment both on shore and on the water.
The Tilley Endurables Falmouth Classics draws hundreds of classic vessels to the harbour, while the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival sees the streets and local pubs and inns ringing with the sound of traditional maritime songs and stories.
Locals and visitors alike descend on the town to soak up the atmosphere, enjoy performances and to secure a vantage point to watch the classic boats racing and parading out in the bay. Now recognised as the largest classic boat event in the UK, the Falmouth Classics really is an event not to be missed. Bowman Yacht Charters offer a fantastic opportunity to get up close to all the action by watching the Sunday parading from the water.
Our chartered sailing packages could see you, your friends and family set sail on the Sunday morning to ensure that you’re perfectly position when the Parade of Sail and Power begins at 10:30. Get away from the crowds clustered along the coastal paths and soak up the spectacle of the fleet of classic boats as they parade around the bay and the Carrick Roads.
Speak to us about building your perfect trip, which could include refreshments or a stop at one of the picturesque local waterside inns or restaurants. Once the Parade is finished, you can return to Falmouth to round off the day with a glass of something cold accompanied by a hearty sea shanty or two. Let us help you make the most of the best that Falmouth has to offer this summer.
