Summer regatta plans announced

Traditional yacht skippers will be able to berth for free at next year’s Falmouth Classics Regatta as organisers bid to make the fixture as popular as those nearer the South Coast.

The three-day event takes place from 13-15 June 2014, in Falmouth Harbour and Carrick Roads with free berthing for classic yachts at Visitors’ Yacht Haven paid for by National Ventilation and Airtech.

Henry Roberts, chairman of Falmouth Classics Association, said: ‘The sponsored berths and moorings will be an incentive for many boat owners to include Falmouth in their summer program. We are looking forward to the 2014 event and continuing to promote the best of classic sailing in Britain.’
