Falmouth, Cornwall, is getting ready for the arrival of one of the biggest international sailing events to take place in English waters. 47 sailing vessels from around the world will arrive in Cornwall for four days of entertainment when Falmouth Bay once again welcomes the Tall Ships back to the South West.
The ships are set to arrive on August the 28th and the festivities will continue until the 30th before they set sail on August 31st. It is the first time Falmouth has welcomed the Tall Ships in 6 years and nothing beats the sights of the white sail tips eclipsing Falmouth Bay.
