The 2020 Festival – COVID Update

COVID-19 Update

At this stage, but dependent on upcoming Welsh Government decisions on organised group events, we are still planning to go ahead with bay racing on the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd August and the LA-LA Rally on the 29th, 30th and 31st August.

The racing will include all cruising classes as well as the Nobbys, Gaffers and Classics fleet out in Conwy Bay, but there will be no River racing this year.

The LA-LA by its nature involves social gathering but we are considering an ‘anchoring off + beach barbecue’ style of event, which could be a circumnavigation of Anglesey, rather than the now traditional Caernarfon Town trip. Again the final decision will be made after the next round of Government announcements on the 9th July.

Many of the COVID-19 restrictions will still be in place in August, so it is likely we will restrict entrants to one household per boat.

Daily social events will not be taking place, but we are considering a single social distanced outdoor barbecue for the prize giving, location to be announced.
