14 June - 16 June
The largest Classic Boating event in the UK
The annual gathering of classic and heritage vessels, in the world’s third deepest natural harbour, combines with the Falmouth International Shanty Festival.
The event attracts classic cruisers, racers and working boats with Bermudan, gaff and lug rigs, which fill the Falmouth Haven and race and parade in the Carrick Roads and the Bay. Two hundred and twelve vessels entered in 2017 and approximately 60,000 visitors were welcomed in the town for both events. Vessels came from around the UK, Germany and France with one all the way from the USA, via the Antigua Classics
