Falmouth Week

Falmouth Week has developed into the largest regatta in the South West, rivalled only by Cowes Week. It provides a racing schedule to challenge the most competitive sailors, while also having a fun and friendly feel which attracts families and the less experienced.

You are sure not to be limited on things to do in Falmouth Week and it is why it attracts such a vast number of both locals and visitors from afar. Activities will be happening across the whole of Falmouth both on land and sea, day and night!
