Fowey Royal Regatta


Welcome to the Fowey Royal Regatta 2022









Fowey Royal Regatta sailing and crab catching
We’re one of the country’s best-loved Regattas, attracting thousands of visitors, many making an annual pilgrimage.

The Regatta is one of the UK’s best known sailing events with a long history. There’s a full programme of races for Troys, Fowey Rivers, Cruisers, Falmouth Working Boats and a handicap dinghy fleet.

Traditional land-based events include the Carnival procession, fireworks displays, the crab-catching competition and Fowey harbour swim, the Giant Pasty ceremony and pasty-eating competition, flora dance and, of course, Fowey Town Band. Plus live music every night on Town Quay.

A week of memories to treasure forever!
