One of the highlights of the year, the annual Fowey Royal Regatta festival runs from Sunday 13th to Sunday the 19th August. The event calendar is bustling with a carnival, contests and firework displays, accompanying one of Britain’s top sailing events which guests can enjoy for free. The Regatta has a history of attracting rather famous faces to the event over the years, including Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Queen Elizabeth the second, hence the name, ‘Royal’.
