The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club has again been chosen to host the Falmouth Classics 2017 regatta.

Since the Falmouth Classics’ rebirth in 2013 and the decision to run the event during the International Sea Shanty Festival, the Classics regatta has grown in stature attracting many historic Classic vessels to the port from along the south coast of England, France and the Netherlands.

Falmouth Classics chairman, John Davison, and vice chairman, Don Garman, have put together a team of volunteers from the Royal Cornwall and other Falmouth PoFSA (Port of Falmouth Sailing Association) clubs to deliver a “Classic boat spectacular that the port can be proud of”.

The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club commodore, Bob Collings, said: “We are delighted to have once again been chosen as the organising authority for Falmouth Classics 2017.

“The Club is proud of the contribution it makes to the sailing in Falmouth and prides itself for delivering a professionally organised and safe sailing regatta.”
