Watching the Regatta

Land-Based Vantage points

The National Maritime Museum, Cornwall provides a stunning view of all the fleet whilst moored in Port Pendennis Marina before and after the racing. The yachts leave from 9:30am and return 3:30pm onwards.

The best place to watch the start and finish of each race is from Little Dennis (Pendennis Point) as the start and finish lines are located between Pendennis Point and St Mawes Castle.

On the Water

If you are planning on following the fleet on the water in your own vessel, please download and review the spectator fleet guidelines from the website and ensure the recommended safe distance from the racing yachts is maintained at all times.

The Event Marquee is located on Events Square and will be open to the public Tuesday-Saturday.

Information about the yachts and the course, race results and regatta film will be on display.
