Work as a team

Tall Ships Event volunteers

For the first time in nine years, Falmouth will once again host the start of the prestigious Tall Ships Race, Magellan-Elcano 2023.

The race starts on Friday August 18th and will be preceded by a visually stunning Parade of Sail and several days worth of celebratory shoreside events, during which time visitors will have the opportunity to board some of the historic tall ships. . Tickets to access these ships that will be sited within the A&P Falmouth Docks, will go on sale nearer the time and will be priced at £5.00 for adults and £2.50 children.

Ideally, volunteers should be 18+ and live relatively near Falmouth or to a bus/train station - this supports the planet and the budget!

What's involved?

We are looking for over 100 event volunteers to ensure the weekend goes as smoothly as possible.

How to get involved?
