Red Arrows Will Overfly Pendennis Superyacht Cup

Organised by the Pendennis Shipyard, Falmouth every two years, the Pendennis Cup is to welcome an impressive fleet of modern and classic 30m+ sailing yachts to Falmouth for four days of dramatic racing with this year’s Regatta taking place from 26th-31st May.
To celebrate the conclusion of a dramatic week of sailing the shipyard has recruited the Red Arrows to fly over Falmouth.
As the final race is completed on Saturday 31st May the yachts will anchor off Gyllyngvase Beach at which point the Red Arrows will fly overhead, with the display visible from Pendennis Point and along the main town beaches.
The first Pendennis Cup was first held in 2008 to coincide with the shipyard’s 20th anniversary. Now organised by Pendennis with racing managed by the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and principle race officer Peter Craig, the Pendennis Cup has grown in popularity year on year.
In 2012 Falmouth saw 13 yachts competing in two different classes, totalling a remarkable 450m + in length overall. The event brought over 350 crew, 300 VIP guests and a wealth of national and international media to the shores of Cornwall.
This year the Regatta will see 10 yachts with a total length of over 300m follow a course from Falmouth to The Manacles stretching to Gul Rock off the Roseland, with the racing managed by the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.

Pendennis Shipyard has developed close ties with the Reds over the last few years and they have supported the British Superyacht industry at several events abroad including the Monaco Yacht Show.
