Conwy River Festival

The best value and most fun sailing event in North Wales



It is with regret that the 2017 CRF committee are cancelling the racing at this year’s event. This is due to the low number of applications received.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Those application fees already received will be refunded/returned and any free marina berthing or harbour moorings for visiting vessels will be honoured.

Conwy Quay Day will go ahead on 26 August as planned.

The Conwy River Festival (CRF) runs for a full week and offers an array of water-based activities plus shore-side entertainment for all the family.

During the week you’ll find:

Apart from Prizegivings for racing (daily on Series race days with main prizegivings on the second Saturday and Sunday), there are other nautically themed events on Conwy Quay during the week, and live music to suit all tastes.  And there’s entertainment for all the family at Conwy Quay Day.

You’ll find a warm welcome at both Conwy Marina and Deganwy Quay marina and social events are held at their respective licensed premises, the Mulberry Inn and the Quay Hotel and Spa.  The two local yacht clubs – Conway Yacht Club on the Deganwy side of the river, and the North Wales Cruising Club in Conwy – also offer entertainment and hospitality for competitors, and getting across the river couldn’t be easier, with the River Taxi service!
