The event was established in 2008. Each year the event runs in June (tide dependent). The event location in 2013 and 2014 was Conwy and for 2015 at Plas Heli in Pwllheli, Gwynedd.
2016 was spent visiting other established events like the RYA Dinghy Show, The Jersey Boat Show and quite a few others.
Conwy boasts two Marinas (Conwy and Deganwy) with 700 berths and a Harbour with over 400 swinging moorings.
Conwy already has a reputation for being an outstanding watersport amenities, Conwy is also a major tourist attraction in its own right and is therefore able to provide the infrastructure for such an event – public transport, corporate hospitality venues, accommodation, eating establishments and plenty of vantage viewing points.
