The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club is delighted to announce it has yet again been chosen by the Falmouth Classics organisation to host and be the Organising Authority for the racing, supporting 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 his Vice Chairman, Don Garman, have put together a team of enthusiastic volunteers from the Royal Cornwall and other Falmouth PoFSA (Port of Falmouth Sailing Association) clubs to deliver a unique Classic boat spectacular that the port can be proud of. The masterstroke is the timing of the event during the International Sea Shanty Festival. Combining the two events together makes it attractive to people of all interests.
Richard Gates, Town Centre Manager said,
“The ‘Tilley Endurables Falmouth Classics’ has really grown and developed over the last couple of years so it is great to see it is confirmed for 2017. The competitors really enjoy the sailing and the onshore activities. With the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival taking place on the same three days, both events compliment each other very well”.
The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club Commodore Bob Collings added,
“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”.
