The Finale! Queen's Jubilee River Pageant - Sunday, 5th June, 2022

We invite you to join a parade of boats, or River Pageant, on the Dyfi estuary.

The event is free of charge and is open to all types of boats; sailing dinghies, rowing boats, motor boats, speed boats, PWCs, including canoes, kayaks and SUPs etc. Our aim is to have at least 70 vessels in the parade, 1 boat for every year of Queen Elizabeth’s long reign. Please decorate your boats as we plan to award the best dressed with a prize!

Boats are to assemble west of the 4-knot yellow speed limit from 11.45 and be ready to proceed at 12.00 noon past the jetty and into Church Bay.  The start signal will be given from the Dovey Yacht Club balcony, the club hooter being sounded by our Commodore Des. All boats shall proceed in single file behind the lead boat which will be the Aberdyfi RNLI Life Boat. Canoes and Kayaks and SUPs are invited to join the Pageant from the beach, after the motor boats have passed by.

The wonderful Abergynolwyn Silver Band will provide music as the boats parade past the jetty.

Bar will be open to members and their guests as well as the RNLI and Aberdovey Rowing Club. A High Tea will be provided Can you contribute a cake, biscuit or something else sweet? Donations would be very welcome as we will have a lot of mouths to feed!

No need to book.

We look forward to welcoming you for this memorable weekend!

Fun for all the family....
