REGATTA WEEK 2017

The Fowey Gallants Sailing Club is the place to be during Regatta Week, a sailing-centred party right on the river starting Sunday 13 August with our Riverside Regatta Roast and finishing up on Saturday the 19th with front row seats to the closing night fireworks. The club is home away from home for all sailors, with early breakfasts, lunches and a special themed dinner each night and the coffee, tea and baked goods are on offer all day long. The bar is open from noon till 11 pm each day, and the club has hot showers, and a place to relax and make yourself at home during the hectic week.

Racing starts for the Cruisers on Sunday 13 August at midday (1200) with the race down to Flushing.
