The excitement builds before the Pendennis Cup 2010

It is now less than 1 week to go until Pendennis hosts the 2nd Pendennis Cup in Falmouth. Following the success of 2008 we have seven yachts confirmed with potentially more still interested. With over 200 crew visiting for the week’s racing and another 150 guests the event will provide plenty of excitement and entertainment on and off the water. With a combination of classic beauty and power when at full sail these yachts will provide an impressive spectacle as they race in and around Falmouth Bay.

The largest yacht we have attending is Adela at an impressive 55.5m and the smallest is Pinuccia at 14.6m. The Cup will be managed by the Port of Falmouth Sailing Association and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club who have designed several different courses each one challenging the yachts to exploit their full potential and provide five days of exhilarating racing. The Race Office, centred in the National Maritime Museum’s Learning Centre, will also have information about each day’s course.

The Pendennis Cup runs from Monday 9th to Saturday 14th August, with the boats setting sail daily (except for Wednesday) from Port Pendennis Marina between 9:00 -10:00am. Each race will begin at 11:00am with the boats returning to the marina at about 3:00pm. There is an opportunity to glimpse these glorious boats underway from Pendennis Point and from the viewing balcony at the National Maritime Museum where Pendennis will host a fascinating exhibition about building and racing these classic superyachts.
