Suhaili 50 Falmouth Parade of Sail 2018
1-14 JUNE 2018. A special 3-day jamboree of sail building up to the Suhaili 50 Falmouth Parade of Sail to mark the 50th Anniversary of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston’s departure to become the first man to sail solo non-stop around the globe back in 1968/9.
Sir Robin set out from Falmouth on 14 June 1968 and was the sole finisher in the Sunday Times Golden Globe race. In doing so, he became the first man to sail solo non-stop around the globe – a feat that remains one of the most significant sailing achievements during the past century. In this salute to solo sailing, Suhaili will be joined by other classic globe girdling yachts, including Sir Francis Chichester’s Gipsy Moth IV and Sir Alec Rose’s Lively Lady, together with the entire fleet of 2018 Golden Globe Race yachts.
The 3-day commemorative event, organised by the Falmouth Town Team and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club where Sir Robin first stepped ashore on his return, promises to be quite a spectacle.
