Classic motor boats cruise into Falmouth today
12:30pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in Cornwall
Classic motor boats are set to cruise into Falmouth in style today as a national rally returns to the National Maritime Museum.
The rally, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary, is organised by the Classic Motor Boat Association, which brings together enthusiasts of classic motor boats from across the UK and abroad.
The majority of craft belonging to members of this fast growing club come from the 50s, 60s, and 70s and are often restored beyond their original showroom condition.
The boats will be moored on the museum's pontoon from Thursday September 12, although during the day the owners will be cruising around the harbour, so you might not be able to catch them until they return from their adventures.
There will be a chance to take a closer look at the boats and meet the owners of these rare craft from 10am-12 noon on Saturday September 14 at the museum's pontoon.
Tim Parr, event organiser, says: “This year we have 14 boats taking to the water and putting on the style. We're happy to talk to anyone about our passion for these wonderful boats, so why not come along to find out what it's all about. And if you're really looking we might even take you out for a spin.”
The rally runs from September 12 to15 at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth.
