Rowing out to honour the Falmouth Classics

We were honoured to receive an invitation to join the Falmouth Classics Parade of Sail, which took part on Sunday 18th June. The conditions were near perfect for rowing – smooth seas, warm sunshine and a gentle breeze. Not so good for the ‘classics’ themselves, as the wind struggled to fill their sails until they were nudging out of the Carrick Roads.

Penarrow coming out to join the parade

Two crews, in Pinnacle and Penarrow, followed the parade, joining up with our neighbours from Nankersey, resplendent in pirate and Poldark themes. It made us wish that we’d read the memo and tried a bit harder… There’s always next year!

At FMPGC, we love the different types of rowing opportunities there are. If you are interested in joining the club, please see our JOIN section.
