The Fowey, Flushing Regatta Race is a fantastic opportunity for local young people to experience the thrill and excitement of yacht racing. This voyage is fully funded by the kind generosity of the Port of Fowey Race Organising Committee (POFROC) who want to make sailing and yacht racing as inclusive as possible.

Open to local young people aged 14+ who live in Fowey and its surrounding areas. (approx 10 miles) There is no cost to taking part.

The race will see young people joining Helen Mary R on Saturday morning for a day sailing into St Austell Bay and some exciting race training followed by a hearty meal back on our mooring in Fowey. Actual racing will start on the Sunday with a 6hr passage race to Flushing in Falmouth. This first race of the regatta will see us beating to windward, rounding Dodman Point and finally crossing the Flushing yacht club line in the late afternoon.

The second race starts from Falmouth and is another passage race back to Fowey, passing the Dodman the other way with the finish crossing the Royal Fowey Yacht Club line in the heart of Fowey to cheers and a cannon!

This is a fantastic opportunity for local young people to experience life afloat and the adrenaline rush of racing other boats. No experience is necessary and full instruction will be given.

A note about crew selection: As we expect to be over subscribed we may need to select participants in consultation with the POFROC committee.
