It now seems prudent to anticipate that some level of social-distancing will still be in force in August.  Indeed the RYA is encouraging race organisers to think in terms of a “new normal” rather than plan or yearn for a return to the “old normal”.  To comply with social-distancing some yacht clubs are starting regular racing between boats sailed by members of the same household, and requiring very small race committees.  Consequently the organising committee is investigating the feasibility of reconfiguring FSW20 as a “same-household”, “management-lite” event.  An email asking for feedback has been sent to all provisional entrants and to 2019 entries.



Sailing Week features up to seven days of fleet racing for yachts and dayboats in the expansive
waters of Falmouth Bay and the Carrick Roads (lower Fal estuary). The week commences with a
 race briefing on the first Saturday, followed by racing each day from Sunday to the following Saturday, with daily and series prizes, and is complemented by comprehensive shoreside events for
everyone. Many of the competitors combine the racing with their annual family holiday!
