REGATTA 2019 18th - 24th August

 


© Jet Photographic© Jet PhotographicThe Fowey Royal Regatta is regarded by many as one of the best local regattas in the country and is usually held over the third full week of August.  It is very much a family regatta, being part of the Fowey Carnival week, with events occurring daily on the Town Quay, carnival processions, gig racing, two firework displays and other entertaining events and activities including the hotly contested children's crab catching competition.

Regatta 2019: 18 - 24th August.
The sailing regatta will follow its usual form with yacht passage races to and from Falmouth on 18th and 19th August, then for the yachts windward-leeward every morning and in the afternoon a Regatta Course on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in St Austell Bay.  Friday (Sponsors Day) completes the yacht racing with a longer race for the "Tribute" trophy and the Lloyds Bank Cup. For the dinghies and keelboat classes there will be two races a day on Tuesday to Friday and the traditional Falmouth Working Boats in-harbour race on Thursday afternoon. Children's races take place on Saturday morning prior to the gig racing in the afternoon. For further details please see http://www.pofroc.org.uk




Concessionary mooring fees are available for yachts – details will be on the Entry Form. Dinghy competitors requiring a trailer space are requested to contact the Fowey Harbour Commissioners direct as there is restricted space at Caffa Mill (landing slip), Penmarlam (Mixtow) and the Old Station car park, near Caffa Mill. Dinghy competitors new to Fowey are strongly recommended to arrive early to secure a space and review the arrangements for launching.            



The joint organising authorities for Sailing during Fowey Royal Regatta Week are Royal Fowey Yacht Club (RFYC) and Fowey Gallants Sailing Club (FGSC) working together as the Port of Fowey Race Organising Committee (POFROC). 

The Regatta racing is administered from the Yacht Club Race Hut. Documentation, results etc. can all be found on POFROC's website: www.pofroc.org.uk

Definitions

Best local dinghy = a boat that is registered with POFROC and sails in Series events                                       

 

Prizes 

Glassware will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.  However if there are less than 5 starters in a class NO THIRD PRIZE will be awarded, and with 3 or less starters there will ONLY be a FIRST PRIZE.

 

Sub Classes

  • If there are 5 or more starters of the same type of boat in a handicap class, then this will become a SUB CLASS within the handicap class.   
  • Once a sub class has been established and there are less than 5 starters in a race, then NO SUB CLASS PRIZE will be awarded BUT they will qualify for A PARENT CLASS PRIZE in that race.
  • If there are more than 5 starters of the sub class, a boat that qualifies for a sub class prize is not eligible for a parent class prize. 

 

 

Sub class boats qualify for the parent class series trophy
