Welcome to the Port of Fowey Race Organising Committee (POFROC) website
POFROC is an unaffiliated body owned and controlled jointly by the Royal Fowey Yacht Club (RFYC) and Fowey Gallants Sailing Club (FGSC).
POFROC acts as one body representing both clubs for the purpose of organising and promoting racing and sailing events in and around the Port of Fowey.
The six members of POFROC are the Rear Commodore (Sailing) and Hon. Sailing Secretary from both FGSC and RFYC, plus one other member nominated by each club respectively.
The highlight of our sailing year is the Fowey Royal Regatta (FRR), which takes place in the third week of August. This is always an excellent week of racing for Cruisers (IRC & Byron ratings), the Falmouth Working Boats, local fleets of Troys and Fowey Rivers, as well as three fleets of dinghies.
Thirty-two sailors from across POFROC's main fleets entered the inaugural Fowey Virtual Sailing Series and joined the worldwide craze of using Virtual Regatta Inshore to keep our sailors engaged through this difficult time. Whilst virtual sailing may not completely make up for the loss of normal racing nor socialising with friends, it does help the sailors to carry their competitive nature through this lockdown period and hone their skills in other ways.
