25th anniversary Plymouth Classic Boat Rally, 27th-30th July

If you’re in Cornwall or Devon and the end of July, don’t forget the Plymouth Classic Boat Rally takes place from the 27th to the 30th.

I’ve had a look at the entrants list, and it’s pretty impressive.

A boat that might catch many people’s interest is Integrity, the Victorian-style gentleman’s cutter built recently by Stirling & Sons of Tavistock.

Among the other craft scheduled to appear are:

  • a flotilla of pilot cutters
  • Francis Chichester’s Gipsy Moth IV, one of the most famous yachts in the world
  • Sir Max Aitken’s impressive 1957-built mahogany-hulled racer Drumbeat
  • the 72 ft ketch-rigged Tamar sailing barge Shamrock, which was built at Stonehouse Creek, Plymouth in 1899
