So what is PoFSA? It is an association run by the local sailing clubs in the Falmouth and Helford area of Cornwall, the class associations of locally sailed boats and the local village regattas. Its purpose is to promote sailing in Falmouth by coordinating all sailboat racing activities locally and organising Falmouth Week, the highlight of our sailing year.
Falmouth has arguably the best sailing waters in the UK. For those who have not sailed before in the Carrick Roads and the Helford River, you are missing a real treat! The expanse of water is like sailing on the open sea, but is usually much more sheltered and if you want bigger waves you can always venture into Falmouth Bay! The local area welcomes all sailing visitors, whether racing or cruising, and dinghies or keelboats. Why not bring your boat along with you on holiday and join in on our racing activities?
One of the main reasons in creating this website is to provide a place to publish our Sailing Calendar and information about the village regattas. Many of these local regattas have been running for over 100 years and are run by a team of volunteers running the racing and the all-important teas and drinks afterwards.
Often they feature children’s beach sports events too. The atmosphere of the village regattas is unique – great racing and a marvellous welcome at the organising base afterwards. Come and join in, whether you are a local or a visitor, you will be made most welcome!
