Press Release – Conwy River Festival 2018

We missed the fun of the Conwy River Festival last year.  So it is BACK.

On the 14th July we will be racing and cruising in Conwy Bay and winning prizes.

The fun begins on the 14th and continues throughout the 15th. With the famous LaLa rally to Caernarfon and a suitable beach scheduled for the 20th 21st and 22nd July. The LaLa will be suitable for PowerBoats as well as the yachting fraternity.

The racing will be open to all classes and skill levels. The lightweight speedy racers, heavy Morecambe Bay Prawners, traditional Gaff Rigged yachts and the gorgeous Conway One Designs will all be competing. The Conway One Designs will be on the river wowing the spectators on the quay on Saturday and again on Sunday. In the afternoon they will be joined by the Cruiser Racers, Prawners, Gaff Rigged Yachts and Powerboats for an extravagant Parade of Sail. We have a generous prize fund. With princely prizes to the value of £1,500 to be shared between the 3 top finishers in each racing class.

The Conwy River Festival is for everyone and we are hoping for a good turnout.

Entry fees will be inexpensive and it will cost only £10 to participate in all the racing events. To take part in the much loved LaLa will be just £10.

Discounted berthing for the Marinas is an added bonus. A weekend entrant can put the boat to bed for the night for as little as £10.

Quay Day, a great family affair is on Saturday 14th July. Fairground rides, market stalls selling loads of goodies will be there for everyone to enjoy.

The social events and briefing for the races will begin on Friday 13th. There will also be a social event after every race on Saturday the 14th and Sunday 15th and a briefing for the LaLa on Thursday  the 19th.

The final prize giving will be celebrated with entertainment and food on 22nd July on the return of the LaLa Cruise.
