The large square-rigged vessels will be berthed at Queen’s Wharf in Falmouth Docks and will be open to the public from 28th to 30th August. On 31st August they will take part in a magnificent Parade of Sail along the coast in Falmouth Bay. They will then race up the English Channel to the finishing line off the Isle of Wight, then sailing in company to Greenwich, London.
You can sign up to take part in the race as a crew member on board of one of the magnificent Tall Ships or enjoy the spectacle of the vessels in port. When the Tall Ships are in Falmouth people will be able to go onboard and experience the sights, sounds and smells of life on-board these majestic ships where fortunes, careers and lives have been won and lost. There’ll also be a packed schedule of onshore activities from exhibitions & displays, children’s activities, live music & entertainment, a colourful ship’s crew parade through the town centre and a spectacular firework display.
