Suhaili Falmouth Parade of Sail

We are approaching 50 years since Sir Robin Knox-Johnston departed Falmouth to be the first to complete a non-stop solo circumnavigation. The Falmouth Town Team and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club have organised an event to celebrate this anniversary.

Caribbean Rally

Grenada turned out to be a fantastic substitute for the rally  planned for the British Virgin Islands and cancelled because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma.  The Caribbean Islands or the West Indies are a massive archipelago stretching from Miami to Venezuela. Columbus called these Islands Indies because he thought he had discovered Asia sailing east to west. The Windward Islands was a British colony from 1833 to 1960. Today there are four separate countries, Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines & Grenada.
