"2008 is going to be the best yet" Preparations for events and activities on the water and ashore are well advanced and bigger than ever.
"2008 is going to be the best yet" - that's the message from the Port of Falmouth Sailing Association and the Shoreside Committee in charge of bringing Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week to the local community and visitors. Preparations for events and activities on the water and ashore are well advanced and bigger than ever.
On the sailing side entries are flowing in with over 60 keelboat class entries and 40 dinghy entries already received, over 350 yachts are expected to enter for the week. Things not to be missed this year include the Comet Trio Class National Championships - part of Dinghy week, not to mention the large classic yachts racing out in the bay.
Also new for this year is the NORSI, a single printed document combining all of the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions for all competitors. For further details on how to enter the regatta or to find the NORSI log on to www.falmouthweek.co.uk.
