Fowey Royal Regatta | Sea Racing Harbour Yachts Yachting Boats Sailing Sailor | The Cormorant Hotel and Restaurant Golant CornwallFowey's spectacular annual regatta has been a huge success yet again this year.

Thousands of people flocked into the town, dined at restaurants in Fowey, Cornwall and watched on from the harbour's edge as a day of racing took place.

There was also reason for those visitors to turn their eyes skywards, as the RAF Red Arrows aerial display team took to the skies above the town to give an impressive performance of aerobatics.

The regatta, which took place throughout last week and ran into the bank holiday weekend, was the latest in a long line of successful events.

While there were no such illustrious guests this year there were thousands of satisfied visitors.

The week of on-the-water racing included a race between Troy class boats - which were specially designed for racing in the town's harbour in the 1920s and which are only made in the town.

Back on terra firma there were more events to entertain the crowds, including a pasty eating competition and live music every day.

A giant pasty was also shipped into Fowey, by boat from nearby Polruan, for a traditional ceremony.
