We are very pleased to announce that on the first night of the festival, Friday 8th July, we have Jonah’s Lift appearing and on Saturday 9th, the Odd Folk, and our old friends Sandy Acre 7.  Across the weekend we also have Camborne Youth Band, the Boundless Brothers, the Ritzy Belles, Dawn Chorus and the Mousehole Male Voice Choir.  The remaining performances are being finalised and as usual we will be enjoying an amazing range of music and choirs.

On the sailing front, around thirty boats have now checked in, though many regular non-communicative Salty Sea Dogs may just turn up! Some of these vessels are coming from Wales, Ireland, Falmouth and beyond. Plus, there will be our old favourites from Mounts Bay. We are also planning another sculling competition on Saturday, organised by Johnny Nance from the St Ives Jumbo Association. This year, there is a new award for the boat that’s travelled the furthest to get here. It’s a special award, so do watch this space.

Skippers. In your planning to get here, please note that there will be a crew supper on Friday evening. Please try and get moored up by 19.30hrs, or your beer ‘n fish stew will be thinned down.
