FOWEY REGATTA AND CARNIVAL WEEK
16 August 2015
For one week each August the usually tranquil little town of Fowey
attracts thousands of visitors who flock there for the Fowey Royal Regatta.
The Regatta is one of Britain’s
premier sailing events. It is also a fun-filled week for all the family.
Over the many years the Regatta has been running, it has attracted many visitors, including Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Queen Elizabeth II.
One of the highlights is always an amazing display over the harbour by the Red Arrows who have been making an annual appearance for over 30 years. Other main events include the Carnival with a colourful parade of people and floats in fancy dress finery; glorious firework displays over the river; live music on the Town Quay; and of course racing on the water every day – not only the serious stuff, but raft and gig racing as well as swimming for the brave!
