2017 Events Calendar:

 

Sunday 1st January 2017 - Abersoch RNLI Sponsored New Year's Day Dip
Location: Abersoch main beach.

Abersoch main beach will again be the place to be on New Year’s Day to get rid of your hangover by rushing into the sea for the annual Abersoch RNLI New Year’s Day dip. This year the fancy dress theme is ‘The Circus’. We are looking forward to seeing the usual imaginative interpretations of the theme, with clowns, acrobats, circus animals and trainers dashing across the beach.
Let’s make an heroic effort to raise as much money as possible, as all money raised will go directly to the RNLI 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.
It is expected that if you join the Dip you will raise some money for the crew, who 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. Forms are available in the village at Abersoch Boatyard and Abersoch Watersports shop or can be downloaded by clicking here.
As usual the Dip will take place on the main beach at 12 noon prompt, and children will go in a couple of minutes before the adults. Hot drinks will be given to all dippers, in the beach café after the Dip.
Last year around 500 brave souls went into the sea, supported by around 2,000 spectators, so it is essential that you allow sufficient time to get through these crowds and the resultant traffic to get onto the beach before 12 o’clock. Each year we have seen disappointed people who didn’t manage to arrive in time for the Dip; we cannot delay the event as it would leave people waiting in the cold.

 

Saturday 29th July 2017 - Pen Llyn Ultra Marathon
Can you run / walk / jog 75miles in 24 hours around the stunning coastal paths of the Llyn Peninsula?

The second edition of this event takes place on July 29th and full details can be found at: www.penllynultra.co.uk

The beach based festival takes place between Thursday 13th and Saturday 15th August. The focus of the event is over in Llanbedrog by a secluded beach where festival goers can enjoy wakeboarding, Stand Up Paddleboarding, paint fights, surfing, skateboarding and slacklining, as well as the newly introduced Flyboard & Hoverboard with some of the best riders in the world putting on an exclusive show at the festival on Friday. This is also where the music takes place across 5 stages including a grand open air stage where the main acts will perform.
Before the main entertainment at the festival site the action kicks off over Abersoch’s way on Wednesday 12th August with the ‘Butter Beach Surf’ event at Hell’s Mouth followed by the first of the ‘Abersoch Sessions’ which includes up-and-coming bands & DJ’s playing intimate gigs with a great buzz around local venues. Thursday 13th August sees the action hot up with the hugely popular ‘Harbour Project’ pro wakeboard event in Abersoch inner harbour. Six of Europe’s top riders competing on the purpose built floodlit course; a totally unique spectacle on the high tide at 7:30pm – 9:30pm in the harbour.

Other entertainments are pro skateboarders on the vert ramp, the spectacular madness of the Flyboard & Hoverboarders, surfing, Stand Up Paddleboarding, slacklining, paint fights, fairground rides or just dive into the lush blue waters of Cardigan Bay.

Camping is highly recommended at Glass Butter Beach, always friendly with a great atmosphere and the campsite’s location is pretty spectacular with sea views & just a minute’s stroll onto the beach. Parking is very close by and the festival provides free shuttle buses to get you to & from Abersoch & Pwllheli to add to your overall festival experience.

Sunday 4th October - Abersoch RNLI Sportive

The Abersoch RNLI Sportive will be held on Sunday 4th October, and will be a non-competitive cycling event that starts and finishes at The Vaynol in the centre of Abersoch village. All money raised from the event will go towards Abersoch RNLI fundraising. The entry fee for single riders is £10 with a requirement to raise at least £15 in additional sponsorship, and for family groups the entry fee is £20 with a minimum sponsorship requirement of £20.

This will be the first time that Abersoch RNLI has run a sportive and we hope to make it an annual fundraising event.

We have decided to offer two routes: a 28 mile route for experienced cyclists, and a shorter route, which can be either 9½ or 16 miles, for families and those looking for an easier ride.

The 28 mile route will cross the peninsula and then go west to circle back round to Abersoch. Riders will leave Abersoch to go up to Mynytho, then go down through Rhydyclafdy and Dinas to a check point at The Lion in Tudweiliog. From there they will go south to Sarn Meyllteyrn, then through Bryncroes and Botwnnog to Hells Mouth and up to another check point at The Sun in Llanengan, then return to Abersoch. The route has 2,200 feet of climbing, with a long climb up from Abersoch to the top of the hill above Mynytho and several other challenging lengths of climbing further on.
The family route will be shorter and will use the lower land to the back of Hells Mouth to avoid the steep hills of the 28 mile route. Riders will leave Abersoch to go to Sarn Bach, then into Llanengan where they will start the circuit to Llangian and towards Botwnnog until they join the route of the 28 mile ride to come back to Hells Mouth. On entering Llanengan, where there will be a check point at The Sun, they can either do another circuit to give a total distance of 16 miles or return directly to Abersoch to give a distance of 9½ miles.
To enter on-line and obtain further information please go to the Eventbrite booking page by clicking here.

Entries will also be taken on the day at The Vaynol, but this will be less convenient and may delay you starting the ride. Any queries can be addressed to either Phill Brown on 01758 712023 or Roy Taylor on 01758 740024.
