Founded in 1991, Fowey Classics takes place at the beginning of August in the beautiful and historic port of Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall.
Fowey Classics is a small (60 - 70 boat) classic boat rally which has become a very friendly annual gathering of an eclectic fleet of vintage and modern classic sailing boats of all sizes and types, representing a vibrant diversity of designers.
Friendly sailing events are spliced into a varied and convivial shore-based social programme which is centered around the two yacht clubs in Fowey, the Royal Fowey YC and Fowey Gallants SC.
Old Fowey hands already know that the combination of beautiful yachts and friendly participants, in one of the West Country’s most outstandingly attractive natural harbours, makes Fowey Classics a very relaxed and enjoyable sailing event with it’s own special ethos.
Join in Plymouth, sail to Fowey for the Regatta and return to Plymouth. 6 Day Cruise Sun 29 Jul - Sat 4 Aug 2012.
You join Annabel J at 4PM on Sunday in Plymouth and spend a enjoyable evening on board. This is the last day of the Plymouth Classics Regatta so we will be surrounded by many other fine classic yachts. The following morning we set off on the first leg of the voyage in company with the other classic yachts also on their way to Fowey. The voyage from Plymouth to Fowey is a pleasant day-sail and we will have plenty of time to enjoy the sailing, admire the other beautiful yachs, fish for mackerel, watch for dolphins and basking sharks and soak up the scenery.
We aim to arrive in Fowey on Monday evening and will receive a warm welcome. With its spectacular scenery, Fowey is one of the jewels of the Cornish coast. The guests are always encouraged to be fully involved in the sailing and the voyage is suitable for all levels of experience from the complete novice to hardened sailors.
