On Saturday of Falmouth Week the place to be is sailing is with Flushing Sailing Club either in the Bay or Carrick Roads then back to the Club for refreshments and prizes! This year we have a marquee on the Quay where Betty Stogs Real Ale is served, and at the Bar too. Entertainment (and singing) is provided. Fantastic homemade teas are provided as usual.
The launch and RIBs (call Flushing Launch on Channel 37 / M1) will bring you ashore or over from Falmouth side if you call the Flushing launch, and for short stops there are a variety of buoys off the Quay or steps to tie dinghies. For all the family there is also a ferry running regularly to the village quay from Prince of Wales pier.
Prizegiving for the Saturday and for the overall Falmouth Week races takes place at the Club on Saturday evening.
Flushing village has two good pubs and a restaurant as well as lovely walks along Trefusis point from which to watch the racing from the headland during the afternoon. Depending upon the weather some of the traditional fleets may finish on the club line.
The club started in 1921 as a response to the Sunbeam fleet and has been the home of traditional racing since then. Work boats large and small, Gaffers, Sunbeams, classic cruisers as well as state of the art sports boats and IRC rated yachts all sail weekly with the club and in a variety of events during the season.
