Falmouth Week 2018

Falmouth Week 2018 | 10th – 19th August

With up to seven days of racing to look forward to on the water and a whole host of events and entertainment taking place around the town, Falmouth Week continues to attract a huge number of people each year. 

As one of the largest sailing regattas in the South West, those attending will be able to enjoy a fantastic week of racing with around 450 yachts taking to the water to battle it out in the waters of Falmouth Bay, the Carrick Roads and the harbour. A wonderful sight to watch, there’ll be plenty to see each day with keelboats, traditional craft, dinghies and more taking part. The popular ‘Champagne Day’ – which takes place on Wednesday – is one of our favourites; watch as the big yachts head out to race over a 25-mile coastal course.

Off the water, a lively programme of events will keep everyone well entertained with a variety of themed party nights, local markets, daily performances, a marching carnival and more taking place over the course of the week. 

Falmouth is thrilled to welcome back the RAFs world renowned aerobatics team the Red Arrows as part of Falmouth Week 2018, taking to the sky at 6.15pm on Tuesday 14th, over Falmouth’s seafront, in direct line of sight of us here at The Royal Duchy Hotel.

You won’t want to miss the world class fireworks display on Friday, going off with a bang over the harbour, they’re another highlight of the week!

For those travelling to Cornwall to attend the event, why not treat yourself to a stay with us here at The Royal Duchy? Just a short walk from the town centre, steps from the beach and with 4 star facilities to enjoy during your stay, you’ll have everything you need to make the most of all that Falmouth Week has to offer.
