Welcome to The Pendennis Cup

Organised by Pendennis Shipyard this spectacular superyacht sailing regatta welcomes beautiful sailing yachts from all over the world, with racing managed by the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and highly experienced Race Officer Peter Craig.

This dramatic regatta showcases modern and classic superyachts as they fight against each other for the honours, exploiting clever tactics to rise to the challenging sailing conditions presented by UK waters, balancing the extremes of tide and weather. 2014 saw 11 yachts with a combined length of over 320m compete over four days.

A full shore-side programme showcases the very best in Cornish cuisine and hospitality to complement the competitive racing. The last regatta culminated in a spectacular display by the Red Arrows watched by thousands of spectators on the shore and hundreds of yachts surrounding the racing fleet after Velacarina secured victory in the Pendennis Cup 2014.
