Many thanks from the Falmouth Organising Committee to all who visited and supported the Falmouth Tall Ships Regatta 2014
Over four days from 28 to 31 August 2014 the applauded event (a finalist in the Large Event of the Year category in the UK Event Awards 2014) saw 197,000 people pour into the Falmouth area delivering a multi-million pound economic boost. The Parade of Sail was the largest Falmouth flotilla in living memory with images captured on the front page of The Times and the Guardian. Overall 89% of businesses felt that the regatta was of great importance to the image of Falmouth and with the total media coverage valued at over £2 million, the event provided an unrivalled platform for showcasing Cornwall to the world.
The impact study was commissioned by Visit Cornwall, conducted by The South West Research Company Ltd and financially supported by Falmouth BID, to evaluate the value of the event for Falmouth and wider Cornwall. The full report can be viewed here
