The event can be incorporated as a stopping-off point for those vessels heading for the other festivals.

There will be stalls, maritime craft displays, exhibitions and opportunities to meet and mingle with other crews at a crew supper. Penzance is home to a variety of heritage and traditional boats (luggers, gaffers, pilot gigs, ketches, crabbers and toshers), the owners of which, look forward to welcoming friends old and new, to historic maritime Penzance.
