About Falmouth Week

Falmouth Week provides a racing programme to challenge the most competitive sailors, yet retains a ‘fun and friendly’ feel which also attracts families and the less experienced.  The regatta is organised by the Port of Falmouth Sailing Association (PoFSA) which is a partnership of Falmouth's six local sailing clubs. See the sailing regatta page for more information.

Falmouth Week's shoreside activities have developed a lot over the years, and thanks to our amazing sponsors and partners we now have a full scehdule of daytime and evening entertainment throughout the town. Find out more on the shoreside events page.

Travel on Wednesday 9th August

Falmouth is busiest on the Family Fun Day, so here is some helpful travel info to plan your trip. Please note, the Red Arrows Display has been relocated to Falmouth Bay for safety reasons, meaning the seafront roads will be busy in the hours leading up to the display.

The Seafront including Pendennis Point will be closed from 3pm-7.30pm, but access to Pendennis Castle and the Ships and Castles will still be permitted (until full). The closures affect all minor roads connected with the seafront (Cliff Road) up until Queen Mary Road, close to Gyllyngvase beach. 

There are public toilets at Gyllyngvase, Castle, Swanpool and Maenporth beaches. There are also portaloos at Pendennis Point (incl a disabled one) just for the Wednesday.

The Town Centre main streets from Market Street through are closed from 11am-9pm for various Falmouth Week activities. For more details on the seafront closures click here.

We very much encourage the use of public transport and please plan your journey early. Support the town and the businesses both before and after the display.
