About Falmouth Tall Ships
As the official Race Start Partner, Falmouth is expecting up to 30 tall ships from around the world to arrive for three days of festivities including a Parade of Sail before the race start. This spectacular, global annual event takes place in European waters over the summer months and consists of two racing legs of several hundred nautical miles, and a cruise in company between the legs. Falmouth is experienced at hosting the tall ships festivals, having first welcomed the tall ships race in 1966, then again in 1982, 1998 and 2008, with the most recent one being the Falmouth Tall Ships Regatta in 2014. We can’t wait to welcome the ships again for the 2021 Falmouth Tall Ships event.
