FOWEY ROYAL REGATTA (FRR) 2020 SUNDAY 16th AUGUST - SATURDAY 22nd AUGUST
Regatta Week takes place every year in the third week of August. There is always a good mix of racing afloat and entertainment ashore, with handicap classes and fleets for the serious racers and also for the more relaxed crews.
Racing takes place in St. Austell Bay, unless the weather restricts the dinghy classes, Fowey Rivers and Troys to shorter courses inside the harbour.
For the Cruisers, the week starts on Sunday with the traditional handicap passage race to Flushing, and then the return race from Falmouth the following day. This year there will be one IRC class (Q) and three Byron handicap classes (1, 2 & White Sail), each with two races a day.
The Falmouth Working Boats always enjoy racing and socialising in Fowey. Watching them race in Fowey is always exciting for spectators and they finish their race every day on the club line inside the harbour in front of the RFYC this is usually quite a spectacle.
The Troys, Fowey Rivers and dinghies all start their morning races outside the harbour and complete triangular courses in the bay directly outside Fowey harbour entrance. In the afternoon they all start from a committee boat positioned inside the harbour between the Town Quay and the Albert Quay.
