The Red Arrows, the major attraction during Falmouth's Festival Week

Falmouth was teeming with visitors this week, for Falmouth Week, which ended last night. With its origins in a local sailing regatta dating back at least as far 1837, the Week has evolved into not only a major sailing competition in the south west but also an opportunity for tourists and locals to enjoy the many daytime and evening attractions in the town.

The highlight, as always, was the annual display by the RAF's Aerobatic team, the Red Arrows, which attracted so many people to the local beaches and headland that the narrow roads in the town were completely gridlocked. But it was certainly a display worth waiting for.

  1. This brings back memories, Barry. I first saw the Red Arrows from St Mawes in 1982. I was there for the tall ships race, a few years before starting at CSM.
