Welcome to the Conwy River Festival 2020

COVID-19 Update

At this stage we are still planning to go ahead with the racing on the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd August, which will include a full programme: The racing and larger cruising classes out in Conwy Bay, Nobbys, Gaffers and Classics in the Bay, and day boats / small cruisers in the River.

We are also hoping to run the LA-LA Rally, scheduled for the 29th, 30th and 31st August, but by its nature it involves social gathering so we have not made any final decision as yet. We may consider an ‘anchoring off + beach barbecue’ style of event rather than the now traditional Caernarfon Town, we will keep you posted.

We are unlikely to be running any social events this year.

Watch this space – Sign ups will open later in 2020
