Falmouth, UK

We are delighted to return to Falmouth and, following the success of The Falmouth Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta 2014, the Funchal 500 Tall Ships Regatta in 2008, The Tall Ships Races 1998 and as a Tall Ship friendly port since their first ever visit in 1966, we look forward to yet another spectacular welcome in 2021. A long-term friend of Sail Training International’s Races and Regattas, the Cornish town will once again welcome the Tall Ships fleet as they make final preparations for Race One south to A Coruña, Spain, on 19 August.

As the first Host Port, Falmouth will join Host Ports A Coruña, Lisbon and Cadiz in hosting the race series along the Iberian Peninsula. Unlike previous events, the largest ships in the fleet will be moored in prime position off the coast of the town, creating a fantastic spectacle set against the iconic backdrop of Falmouth Harbour framed by Henry VIII’ twin castles of Pendennis and St Mawes.
