Simply follow this link to register and vote. The synopsis says
This iconic summer regatta week endeavoured to go ahead despite a reduced format, and nonetheless delivered fantastic sailing for 120 boats, carefully managed by the six local clubs of the Port of Falmouth Sailing Association.It's certainly true, but as one of the biggest contributors to the event, not only in terms of numbers of participating competitors, but also in the many Club members who provide the non-sailing support, your vote will help us all receive a welcome pat on the back in a very ‘interesting’ year.
We're in the process of adding an annotated photo log of the works in progress for the new Clubhouse. We expect to add to this as the development progresses.
The footprint of the Clubhouse and an area around it are a building site. Building sites are inherently potentially dangerous. Please do not trespass and put yourself in jeopardy. There should be access to the end of the quay, and the slipway is still accessible.

Flushing Sailing Club is a truly amazing, flourishing, sailing club running the best yacht racing in the port of Falmouth.
Founded in 1921 for the benefit of Flushing residents, the club is situated on the New Quay commanding stunning and panoramic views of the inner Falmouth Harbour and the reaches of the Penryn River.
The club has a long history of providing exhilarating and competitive racing for yachts in and around the Carrick Roads as well as coastal and offshore events. A strong involvement with the Sunbeam class during the early years of both the Club and the Sunbeam class continues. We enjoy the full support and participation of the Falmouth Working Boats Association.
With their distinctive topsails, the working boats and the gaffers are a symbol of the region and continue a traditional form of sailing. But the club supports contemporary yachts too, providing competitive and friendly racing for many classes.
Most racing takes place in the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay, usually finishing on the club line (an imaginary line between ourselves and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club). During the summer we can expect around 50 boats racing on a Tuesday evening, and an awesome number of yachts setting sail for their Saturday afternoon races. They make a grand sight as they come up the harbour to the finish line.
Members are joined together by their love of sailing, but being a visitor friendly club, non-members are also invited to share our facilities on Tuesday evening and Saturday afternoon racing throughout the season.
Flushing Sailing Club has been honoured to host the main prizegiving for the whole of Falmouth Sailing Week. It was a day to remember for all competing sailors and families. We look forward to hosting the 2020 prizegiving.
And we are inordinately proud that Pete Goss MBE consented to become an Honorary Life Member of the Club, together with Bill Hunt, Nessa Simcock and Harold Martin.
A potted history of the first 75 years of the Club is available here. We are looking forward to 2021, our centenary year.
