The Tall Ships are coming back to Falmouth!

For the first time in nine years, Falmouth will once again host the start of the prestigious Tall Ships Race, Magellan Elcan. The ships will arrive Monday 14th & Tuesday 15th with the race starting on Friday.

We have been very lucky to secure limited  tickets to go aboard one of the sailing ships, of course we don't know which one.  We have timed tickets for 14.00 and the web site suggests the self guided tour last approx 1 to 2 hours.  There will be crew/staff on board to tell us about the ship.  Falmouth will be alive and busy so please bear this in mind.  There should be various entertainment going on and a selection of  stalls. 

Previously we have gone on the start of the race to Pendennis Castle away from the crowds to see the Parade of Sail as it pass the point but presently they have not said what time this will take place.
