(TRAVPR.COM) UK - July 19th, 2012 - More than 300 yachts will converge on the south-west coast of England for this year's Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week next month.

Running from Saturday August 11th to Sunday August 19th, the event combines yacht racing with a variety of shoreside activities, ranging from an extreme mountain bike showcase to a gig from ABBA tribute act Bjorn Again.

The group will perform hits from the Swedish pop icons at Events Square on August 14th from 19:00 BST, with tickets priced at £15.

On the water, the week is due to get underway with the Falmouth Classics, which sees over 100 classic yachts racing in the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay.

Wednesday - or Champagne Day - is set to be a highlight, as vessels in the IRC and PY 1&2 classes and MOCRA multihulls will compete on a long coastal course.

All winners will receive a champagne prize from the Mayor of Falmouth during a special event at the Falmouth Watersports Centre.
