Tall Sips Races Falmouth

Proudly welcoming Tall Ships back to Falmouth in 2023

With over 60 years of experience as local Cornish travel agents, at Newell’s Travel we believe that no holiday is too big or too small, and no destination is too near or too far. Whether it’s a dream honeymoon, a family adventure, a group getaway, or a solo expedition, our dedicated team of travel experts strives to plan the perfect escape and create memories that last a lifetime.

From the 15th to the 18th of August 2023, the esteemed Tall Ships Race, Magellan Elcano, will return to the coastal town of Falmouth, Cornwall for the first time in eight years and our team from the Helston and Falmouth stores have been counting down the days!

Our stores are teaming up with Tall Ships legends Star Clippers, and heading down to the docks, with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a lucky race spectator.

Star Clippers, the world’s most spectacular Tall Ships

For over 30 years, Star Clippers has been leading the way in providing authentic sailing experiences upon some of the most unique and timeless vessels on the seas.

Star Clippers operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels. Visiting intimate ports often untouched by larger cruise ships and offering passengers the activities, amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht, Star Clippers is recognised as one of the premier speciality cruise lines.

Passengers can enjoy the romance of sailing on board a true tall ship in a relaxed atmosphere with high standards of service provided by an attentive crew. All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, a convivial Tropical Bar and a comfortable piano bar.
