2018 Events Calendar:


Don't Forget the last event of 2017 is a new one... Sunday 31st December 2017 ... The 1st Abersoch "San Silvestre" 6K Run ... A new event for Abersoch has been announced, which will take place on New Year's Eve on the main beach, where you can run your last run of 2017. The event is inspired by the famous "San Silvestre" runs in Spain and when our favourite Spaniard comes to Abersoch for the festivities and misses his NYE eve race and ends up running it on his own, it was decided to bring a little bit of Spain to Abersoch. So, why not come and join him for the last race of the year and help bring the San Silvestre race spirit to Abersoch.
This will be a fun event and participants are requested to meet at the yacht club end of Abersoch main beach at 12pm for a 6k run. The after race "debrief" will of course involve a pint in the pub.
Run starts and finishes at the slipway at SCYC end of the beach.


Monday 1st January 2018 - Abersoch RNLI Sponsored New Year's Day Dip
It is coming up to that time of year again.... You won’t hear the Sound of Music on Abersoch main beach on New Year’s Day, but you may think you are watching a Cabaret as the Guys and Dolls rush into the sea for the RNLI New Year’s Day Dip.  The sea at 12 noon won’t feel like the South Pacific, but even if it’s raining Cats and dogs only Les Miserables will not want to join the fun to raise money to help ensure that our local crew can be equipped with the best equipment, clothing and training when they go out to sea in any weather. The fancy dress theme this year is Musicals.
It is expected that if you join the Dip you will raise some money for the crew.  There won’t be a Showboat on the water, but the crew will be on and in the water at the event to look after everybody’s safety, so to take part a sponsorship form is needed.  Sponsorship forms are available in the village at Abersoch Boatyard and Abersoch Watersports shop or can be downloaded by clicking here, and will be available at the tent on the beach on the day. 


Saturday 24th February 2018 - St Tuds RNLI Casino Night

The glamour and excitement of Monte Carlo will come to Abersoch on Saturday 24th February, when the landlords of the St Tudwal’s Inn have kindly offered to run a casino night as a fundraising event for the RNLI.  There will be poker, roulette and blackjack tables, with professional croupiers.  Tickets are £25 each and include gambling chips and a buffet supper.  This should be a fun evening, with smart dress to add to the atmosphere of the event.  Tickets are on sale at The St Tudwal’s Inn, Abersoch Boatyard and Abersoch Golf Club.

Sunday 7th October 2018 - Abersoch RNLI Sponsored Bike Ride

Abersoch RNLI is once again holding a Sponsored Bike Ride for keen cyclists and family groups.  As in previous years, this is a non-competitive cycling event starting and finishing in the centre of Abersoch at The Vaynol.  All money raised from the event will go towards Abersoch RNLI fundraising.

The ride will be on Sunday 7th October and riders will be able to start at any time, of their choosing, between 9:00 and 11:00am.

There are four routes: a 40 mile route, with 3,067 feet of climbing, for experienced cyclists; a shorter 30 mile route, with 2,342 feet of climbing, for those seeking less of a challenge; and two shorter routes of 15 or 9½ miles, for families and those looking for an easier ride.  14-15 year olds may ride unaccompanied on the 15 and 9½ mile routes with parental permission.  Under 14 years must be accompanied by an adult on the 15 and 9½ mile routes.

All routes are tried and tested by local riders and designed around our beautiful North West Wales Llŷn peninsula and were planned to accommodate the riding abilities of all participants.

There is be an individual entry fee of £10 with a requirement to raise at least £15 in sponsorship, or for families an entry fee of £15 with a requirement to raise a minimum of £25 in sponsorship.  We hope that all entrants will raise as much money as possible to support the wonderful volunteers who man our lifeboat in all weathers.  All those who finish the course will receive a commemorative medal and slate coaster.

Registration and entry will open at the Vaynol at 8:45am, but riders will not be released to start until 9:00am.
