Now in its third year, the Lambs’ Week festival hosted by Galway Bay Sailing Club will welcome boats of all sizes and inclinations from next Thursday 28 July to Bank Holiday Monday 1 August.
Held over five days, Lambs’ Week is a mixture of casual racing, cruising and fun along the shores of Galway Bay with one night in Ros á Mhil, two nights in Cill Rónáin on Inís Mór in the Aran Islands and the final night in Galway Marina for the Commodore’s Ball at the Bill King Clubhouse.
The highlight of the weekend is a pursuit rally where the boats sail a challenging circuit around Inis Oírr and Inis Mean and return to Cill Rónáin for food, music and plenty of craic. Last year over 40 boats participated, and organisers at Galway Bay Sailing Club are hopeful for similar numbers this year.
Event sponsors include Corio Generation, a leader in the development of offshore wind farms; Gaeltacht na hÉireann, Aerogen and the Port of Galway, who are instrumental in making the event possible.
The organisers are also keen to promote the excellent cruising grounds of the West Coast while highlighting the need and opportunity for better facilities for the many visiting boats at the Aran Islands and other anchorages.
