The Fowey Sailing Committee plans to attract more fleets to stage events in the beautiful waters around St. Austell’s Bay and the River Fowey in Cornwall, after a very successful start to the season.

In June they hosted the International 14s Prince of Wales Trophy and Wind Whisperer week. Eighteen International 14s competed and the level of the fleet was high, including six new Beiker 6 “virtual one-designs”.

For the Prince of Wales Trophy, race director John Burford charted a fantastic 40km course over six laps as a 14 knot northerly gust set in and the fleet competed for one of the most prestigious trophies in dinghy. See the full race report.

Next on the agenda was Albin Ballad’s 50th birthday and the British National Ballad Championships. The sailing took place over four days, with a mix of championship races, pursuit races and social sailing, all followed by a great mix of social events ashore.

All racing events are run jointly by the Royal Fowey Yacht Club and the Fowey Gallants Sailing Clubs, who between them offer a complementary mix of food, drink and waterside entertainment.

The next big event is the annual Fowey Royal Sailing Regatta, the highlight of Fowey’s sailing calendar, attracting participants from across the UK. The week-long event runs from August 14-19, 2022.
