Spectacular start to J-Class regatta in Falmouth

RSS
From 27 June 2012

Stunning start to J Class racing in Falmouth. Hop on our spectator boat to see the action up close.

NB: All the spectator boat is now sold out for the remainder of the regatta.

The first J Class regatta of the Olympic year is underway in Falmouth, Cornwall.


The regatta, hosted but the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, has the yachts Ranger, Velsheda, Rainbow and Lionheart racing against each other.

The first race was held yesterday and saw Ranger winning in a time of 2 hours and 41 miutes. There's a different race each day until June 30.

Fal River Cornwall has a spectator boat running through out the regatta and at a price of just £16 represents fantastic value.

On each day throughout the regatta we will be providing a boat capable of carrying 100 passengers, with an onboard toilet and bar, which will leave at 1030hrs from Prince of Wales Pier in Falmouth and return at the end of the racing.

Each passenger will need a Fal Mussel Card Visitor as their ticket (only 1-day cards will be accepted) which includes free all day parking at Falmouth's Park and Ride/Float as well as unlimited hop-on hop-off travel around the Fal River.

The spectator boat will travel to the start line and follow the flow of the race and there will be an on board commentary.

To book a place on the spectator boat please call the Fal River Visitor Information Centre on 01326 313 394.
