Venue: Fowey

We have been asked to support the swimming races during Fowey Royal Regatta week. The races will take place on Tuesday 21st August at approximately 6.45pm. The time may be moved back slightly as there is a cruise ship due to leave the harbour at 6.30pm.

Meeting on the water at Caffa Mill (where the car ferry leaves from) at 6.20pm ready to paddle down to Town Quay for the briefing. Parking will be available from 6pm in the library car park.

The races are normally finished by 7.45pm - this may change depending on when the cruise ship departs.

Paddlers will need to have their own boats.
