Sunbeam 100

Sunbeams sailing in Falmouth Harbour.

Friday 28 June 2024 – Sunday 4 May 2025

Sunbeams hold a special place in the hearts of all who sail them. Renowned for their upwind performance and precision, it’s said there’s nothing quite like a Sunbeam.

Uncover the history of this unique and revered class from its conception in the early 1920s to the present day, navigating tragedy and controversy along the way. The exhibition features photographs through the ages, video interviews, and fascinating objects including Flushing Sailing Club’s first logbook of Sunbeam races.

Sunbeam 100 has been produced in collaboration with Falmouth Sunbeam Class Association.

Runs from Friday 28 June 2024 to Sunday 4 May 2025.
