Falmouth Classics 2011

A ‘classic’ year ahead

It’s the second week of January and Eight Wire has hit the ground running at the start of a busy and exciting year.

As part of our commitment to assisting Falmouth Tall Ships Association, we’re involved in promoting the visit of the Dutch brig Mercedes this Easter. Mercedes visits Falmouth offering hands-on sailing to all comers and tickets for the day-sails are selling quickly.

We’re also thrilled to finally get confirmation that Falmouth will play host to part of a major international tall ships race in 2014 – which will fill these waters with interesting and historic vessels from around the world.

As though that weren’t enough, 2013 will see a great development in Falmouth Classics – a traditional sailing event that is set to grow from one day to a glorious three-day event running in alliance with Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival running from June 14 to 16.

If 2012 will be remembered as our ‘olympic’ year, then 2013 promises to be a classic.
