This is a 2-day festival of races for canoes and rafts, with opportunities for novices to try canoeing rowing and stand-up paddle-boarding along with other activities, including performances by the Batala Band and Liverpool Hope University Silver Band.
The event takes place upon the River Mawddach/Afon Mawddach – one of the most picturesque settings in the whole of the UK. The course is based on the 10 km tidal stretch between Barmouth Harbour and Penmaenpool bridge (strategically located for spectator refreshments beside the George III inn).
The event is being staged in order to raise money for the Hope House Children’s Hospice Ty Gobaith and other local charities. It is organised by the Mawddach Rotary Club Trust – the local branch of the Rotary Club in conjunction with Merioneth Yacht Club.
