The ships will be in Falmouth from the 28th - 31st August 2014.
The sight of white sail tips cresting the horizon of Falmouth Bay will herald a landmark moment in history when Falmouth, Cornwall and Royal Greenwich, London will together host one of the biggest international sailing events in solely English waters.
Over 45 Tall Ships from around the world will arrive in Falmouth for three days of festivities from 28th to 30th August before the race start on the 31st. On Sunday 31st August, the Tall Ships will pass between Henry VIII’s twin Tudor castles of Pendennis and St Mawes in a magnificent Parade of Sail to the start line in Falmouth Bay. They then head eastwards en route to the finish line just off the Isle of Wight. The ships will continue to London, sailing up the iconic River Thames to the finish port of Royal Greenwich, where they will enjoy a further five days of celebrations.
