The Conwy River Festival (CRF) will be taking place over two weekends in July 2018. On the first weekend 14 - 15 July there will be racing with a prize fund of £1500, as well as the Quay Day. The LA-LA Rally takes place over the following weekend 20 - 22 July.

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.

Visit the CRF website to register and more details of events.

The Conwy River Festival (CRF) started in 1993 as a celebration of the relationship between the historic town of Conwy and its majestic river estuary. Over the years the Festival has grown and developed to reflect many different aspects of that relationship, both ancient and modern. This year the CRF is running across two weekends and offers an array of water-based activities plus shoreside entertainment for all the family.
