Fowey Royal Sailing Regatta takes place every year in the third week of August. There is always a good mix of racing afloat and entertainment ashore, with handicap classes and fleets for the serious racers and also for the more relaxed crews.
Racing takes place in the stunning surroundings of St. Austell Bay and the estuary of the river Fowey in Cornwall.
For the Cruisers, the week starts on Sunday with the traditional handicap passage race to Flushing, and then the return race from Falmouth the following day. This year there will be cruiser class racing under IRC and SWYTC, each with two races a day. Final class splits will be determined upon entries being examined shortly before the event.
The Falmouth Working Boats always enjoy racing and socialising in Fowey. Watching them race in Fowey is always exciting for spectators and they finish their race every day on the club line inside the harbour in front of the Royal Fowey Yacht Club this is usually quite a spectacle.
The Troys, Fowey Rivers and dinghies all start their morning races outside the harbour and complete courses in the bay directly outside Fowey harbour entrance. In the afternoon they all start and finish from a committee boat positioned inside Fowey harbour between the Town Quay and the Albert Quay.
After racing each day sailors gather at either Royal Fowey Yacht Club or Fowey Gallants Sailing Club for a relaxing drink or two, great food and a good chat about the days events before prize-giving.
