Falmouth Week 2018
Falmouth Week has grown into the largest sailing regatta in the south west with more than 450 yachts racing over eight days along with a lively programme of shore side events. Overlooking the third deepest natural harbour in the world and surrounded by the picturesque beauty of the Carrick Roads waterways, Roseland Peninsula and South Cornish coastline, Falmouth’s amphitheatre-like setting is the ideal locale for visitors to enjoy the spectacle.
Apart from watching the exciting sailing on the water, on the shore there are activities to keep everyone entertained from a marching carnival and a firework display to themed party nights and samba bands. In Events Square there’s a daytime artists and Cornish crafts market as well as free fun for all the family at the “Science in the Square” on Friday, while in the evening you’ll find a great line up of music acts. There are daily live performances on the Prince of Wales pier featuring music, street theatre and dance, you’ll find a local market in the marquee on The Moor and you can take a fascinating guided history walk around Falmouth.
Take a trip on the water to watch the evening gig boat racing close at hand or for the more gung-ho show off your athletic side in The Trident Swim Challenge from Gyllynvase Beach. Activities for the kids include free rock pooling sessions and special events at the National maritime Museum, Gyllyngdune Gardens, and Pendennis Castle.
