Event Programme


Each year four days of competitive racing during the Pendennis Cup are complemented by an exciting shore-side event programme allowing Owners, Captains, Crew, sponsors and invited guests to enjoy the very best of Cornish hospitality.

Racing Days

Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: race start and finish times tbc

Thursday: Lay Day (no racing)

The start and finish lines are usually located off Pendennis Castle, with the racing yachts visible from Pendennis Point or St Mawes Castle.

Each race day will consist of a morning Skippers briefing, pre-race guest registration and a post race bar open to guests and competitors in the Pendennis Cup marquee on Events Square.


Public Events

The Event Marquee provides information about the regatta, the yachts, the course and film footage of the previous day’s racing will be on display.

Watching the Racing

Land-Based Vantage points
The tower at the National Maritime Museum, Cornwall provides a stunning view of all the fleet whilst moored in Port Pendennis Marina before and after the racing (yachts leaving and return times tbc).
The best place to watch the start and finish of each race will be from Little Dennis (Pendennis Point) with the start/finish line positioned between Pendennis and St Mawes Castles.


Daily Event Schedule

The racing is complemented by daily events, organised for the visiting crews, invited guests and event partners.
