Review of the Pendennis Cup 2010
Pendennis and Antigua Yacht Club partnered to organise a Trans- Atlantic fun regatta to feed in to the UK 2012 Olympic superyacht programme The Falmouth – Falmouth Rum Race will run in the opposite direction to the traditional Route de Rosé - beginning at the Antigua Yacht Club in Falmouth Harbour, following Antigua classics with the option for yachts to start earlier if they prefer, with a possible stop in the Azores on route. Kenny Coombs of Antigua Yacht Club commented We are very pleased to be involved in this exciting new event on the yachting calendar. The Falmouth – Falmouth link will no doubt attract a great number of yachts to link up with a number of fantastic UK- based regattas in 2012. The Falmouth - Falmouth Rum Race
