Int Mersey River Festival, Liverpool
Rounds 7 & 8
24th - 25th June 2017
The International Mersey River Festival are hosting the ThunderCat Racing RYA National Championships Rounds 7 & 8 for a second year! 2016, was such a great success and enjoyed by all. This action-packed sport is set to return again to compete on the River Mersey, in front of thousands of crowds that will be attending this high profile Liverpool event.
The Mersey River Festival won the 2017 bid to host the National Armed Forces Day; thus the event will attract even more spectators from afar and ties in nicely with our previous event at Caenarfon the week before, also promoting Armed Forces Day.
The River Mersey is not just any river, it’s the beating heart of a truly special city that has been at the forefront of innovation for three centuries. The Mersey River Festival is a celebration of their glorious waterfront in a FREE extravaganza of family fun, amazing entertainment along their iconic river with a host of creative workshops and entertainment for the whole family.
As an added bonus for the visitors, in between the fast paced enduro races, the orgnisers are laying on a knock out drag race, which will see up to 4 boats race from a standing start 500m down the Mersey for a photo finish!
We are also offering 'Taster' rides for their TRUE Foundation charity in Canning Docks. For further information contact
