From the Tall Ships Falmouth 2021 Facebook page:
With the continuing uncertain situation throughout Europe and across the globe in relation to the COVID pandemic, Falmouth Town Council, UK, Falmouth Cornwall UK, Falmouth Town Team, Falmouth Tall Ships Association and key strategic partners have announced that the 2021 Falmouth Tall Ships race and event, planned for August 17-19th 2021, will not be going ahead.
However, possible options are being actively worked upon which will be announced by the team in near future.
This news will perhaps not come as a surprise. The COVID situation and in particular, the highly transmissible Delta variant continues to severely affect international travel, the events sector and crucially for this event, the ability for the tall ships to travel and safely accommodate crew, a key aspect in respect of their commercial viability.
The Falmouth Town Team (the award-winning public private partnership between Falmouth Town Council and Falmouth BID) will be providing further updates in the coming weeks.
