28-31 August 2014

From 28th to 31st August 2014, Falmouth is set to host a nautical epic, welcoming 45 sail training vessels from around the world, including 12 of the magnificent and mighty square-rigged Tall Ships.  For the first three days, the ships will be open to the public for a unique opportunity to explore on deck and learn about life on board these giants of the sea. The whole town will be involved in a packed programme of shore side activities and live music from 11.00am to 11.00pm daily, most of which is free. The ships will leave Falmouth in a spectacular Parade of Sail to the start line off Falmouth Bay on Sunday 31st August, from 12.30pm to 2.00pm. From 3.00pm the ships will disperse to the start line a few miles offshore.
