The villages of Point and Penpol hold this exciting regatta every year on Point Quay.
Sample the best in home baking from the refreshment tent and watch the sailing boats racing so close to the quay you can almost reach out and touch the boats!
Children’s races on the Green and a crabbing competition off the quay will entertain the children.
The Point and Penpol Regatta dates back to the early twentieth century when the tidal ria of Restronguet Creek was a busy industrial waterway for the transportation of tin and copper from the nearby mines. The Devoran and Penpol Creeks join here and all run into the estuary of the River Fal known as Carrick Roads and famed for its boating and yachting. Today the quay at Penpol is used for pleasure craft and the Restronguet Yacht Club runs regattas from Devoran.
