18th – 24th August 2024

Fowey Regatta and Carnival 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.

We also have many traditional land-based events including the Carnival procession, fireworks, crab-catching and harbour swim, the Giant Pasty ceremony, flora dance and, of course, Fowey Town Band. Plus live music throughout the week.

A week of memories to treasure forever!

Without your donations, Fowey Regatta wouldn’t be half the event it is. Where possible, every event is free to spectate. Please consider donating to make Fowey Regatta the fantastic event it is for all!
