Cornish Lugger Regatta 2009 – in Looe

The Looe Lugger Regatta will be running over three days from Friday 12th June through until Sunday 14th June.

This is a lovely Cornish event and is wonderful to see (excuse the pun!) and join in with. The Cornish, French and UK Luggers create a magnificent scene on the sea and in the harbour.
