Whilst the future cannot be predicted with certainty, planning for FSW21 is proceeding on the assumption that restrictions will be no worse than in 2020.  With more time to plan than last year it should be possible to return to near normal racing formats, i.e. committee boat starts for both fleets, start lines set for the wind direction, and laid windward marks.
Large social gatherings ashore are, however, more uncertain.  It will not be known for some time whether Falmouth Week shoreside will be able to return in 2021, or whether race briefings, daily teas and prize-givings, and the end-of-week series prize-giving will be possible.


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!
