Flushing Village Regatta

The Club is host to the Flushing Village Regatta, one of the many local village regattas held in the Falmouth area. If you plan to take part you'll want the Notice of Race, the Sailing Instructions, the Racing Marks chart and the chart showing the harbour restrictions.

Besides organising the racing for the day, the Clubhouse is the site of the sumptuous teas.

On a fine day the Quay is an excellent place to sit out in the sun and enjoy, assuming you aren't out on the water.

Falmouth Week

The Club is one of the members of PoFSA, under whose umbrella the village regattas are organised. PoFSA is also responsible for Falmouth Week, which in 2018 is 12th to 18th August. Traditionally the final Saturday is Flushing's 'day' and the evening's presentations, teas and entertainment take place at the Club, usually with the addition of a marquee on the Quay. There will be live music. You just can't stop these people singing!

A fully stocked bar is available serving local ales.

Regatta handicaps

If you race in a village regatta or Falmouth Week, you may require a Yacht Time Correction (YTC), formerly known as the Falmouth Area Yardstick (FAY). The Working Boats (B & C classes) and Gaffers (G class) use their existing class handicaps, the Sunbeams (V class) race as a one-design, but those in Q, U and W should ensure they have a FAY. In Falmouth Week there will be IRC class races in the Bay where YTC is not required, but in the Carrick Roads racing for these boats use YTC. It costs nothing, so better to be prepared than to be disappointed on the day.

To obtain a YTC, follow the link to the YTC application form; all current local YTC ratings YTC list.
