WOW Festival

The annual festival aims to provide an activity that will support and grow female participation in boating and develop character traits, skills and water awareness with ongoing involvement to improve their health and wellbeing

The RYA Northern Ireland Women on Water Festival is aimed at all females interested in boating from lifelong sailors/boaters to newbies that are coming along to try it for the first time.

No experience is needed and activities are available to suit everyone;  from dinghies, cruising, powerboating to paddleboarding and much more....  Workshops are also provided to help participants learn more about boating and how to grow their skills and confidence

Lots of prizes available on the day but the best prize of all is the fun you will have with friends and likeminded people

2021 WoW Festival 

We are delighted to announce the date of the 2nd Women on Water Festival!!



Please note that this sign up is for expression of interest only - it will not guarantee you a place. We want to find out if people are interested first and how many. Once we have this information we will send out a booking form to those who complete this Expression of Interest first.

Covid restrictions at the time of the festival will apply, therefore we will be holding off bookings until closer to the time.

Why not give it a try this year - get outdoors and enjoy the water in Northern Ireland.  Its a beautiful view from the water looking onshore. 

We are hoping for a similar set up to the first festival with lots of activities to try!
