Our video archive is fully searchable, and linked to all the clubs and classes in our database. It is updated weekly with the latest videos of sailing, but here we delve into the past, and round-up everything that shows sailing at Falmouth in the south-west of England.

This video is from 1931 and shows two J Class yachts - the King's yacht 'Britannia' and Sir Thomas Lipton's 'Shamrock' - competing in Falmouth.

British Pathé have lots of excellent footage from the 1920s and 30s, originally used for newsreels, and much of it is now digitised.
