This year the event is triple the size and taking place in June

The new Falmouth Classics 2013 website has been launched and aims to be an important resource for competitors and spectators alike.

The website offers a whole host of information on the classic boat racing event, including a full programme of activities, while competitors can book their place in the regatta and associated social events online via the automated booking system.

Falmouth Classics, which dates back to 1949 and first took place in its current guise in 1989, has traditionally taken place as a single race on the day before the start of Falmouth Week regatta in August.

This year marks its transition to a three-day dedicated event featuring classic boat racing and traditional song thanks to a new link with the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival.

Also new this year is a parade of classic boats along the inner harbour on the Saturday morning for the whole town to enjoy.
