Up to 100 unique Irish boat's, the Galway Hookers, once the workhorses of the coast of Connemara and North Clare, will gather for a weekend of racing and celebration at Cruinniu na mBad (gathering of the boats) festival in Kinvara, Co.Galway
Galway Hookers, mostly from Connemara, will congregate in Kinvara Bay for a weekend of racing. There are 4 classes of Hookers- The Bad Mor, the Leathbad, the Gleoiteog and the Pucan. On Saturday 4, Hookers will sail into Kinvara Quay laden with turf as they have done for generations and for this race they will use their old 'Calico' sails. All are welcome to join in the celebrations.
