Conwy River Festival

The best value and most fun sailing event in North Wales

La La Rally

Due to unforeseen circumstances unfortunately the 2017 LA-LA rally has been cancelled.  Please accept our apologies for any disappointment caused.

We hope to run the event again in 2018 and we would be grateful for any expressions of interest for a skipper and vessel to act as the lead boat.


The LA-LA Rally began as an accompanied cruise for yachts and motor-boats from the Liverpool Arms, Conwy to the Liverpool Arms, Menai Bridge (Anglesey) a distance of about 12 miles with an overnight stay in Menai Bridge.

In more recent years the cruise has often been over two nights and gone right down the Menai Strait to Caernarfon, through the notorious Swellies.  Many people enjoy the challenge of negotiating the Swellies in the company of more experienced sailors, and the hospitality at the Caernarfon end is usually legendary! 

There are tasks and activities to be completed en route with prizes for just about everyone.   It’s a great way of enjoying some of the most spectacular scenery North Wales can offer, testing your boat-handling skills, and making a whole batch of new friends.
