Port to host tall ships regatta

Falmouth has been announced as host port for the Iberian Tall ships Regatta in 2014.

More than 20 tall ships from around the world will take part in the regatta which will start in Greenwich before ending in either France or Spain.

In 2008 the Cornish town hosted the Funchal 500 Tall Ships Regatta which brought more than 100,000 people to the town and generated more than £12m for the local economy over four days.
