Dates for 2014 Tall Ships Regatta in Falmouth confirmed

The dates for the 2014 Tall Ships Regatta in Falmouth have been confirmed by organisers, whilst some of the early plans for the event have also been revealed.

Three days of festivities beginning on 28 August will see up to 50 ships gather in the picturesque Cornish seaside town, with the race itself starting on 31 August.

Members of the public will be allowed to go on board the large square rigged vessels, all of which will be situated at Queens Wharf in Falmouth Docks.

Crews will also be parading through the town centre before the ships prepare to race, offering an opportunity for onlookers to meet and greet the participants.

Last held at Falmouth in 2008, where it is reported to have attracted 100,000 visitors and generated more than £12 million for the local economy, the Tall Ships is always a show stopping event.

Book a break in one of the wonderful self catering Cornwall cottages next summer and watch one of the most prestigious events on the sailing calendar.
