Open day 2019

This year’s event takes place on Sunday 18 August from 11am to 4pm at the Boathouse on the promenade at Craig Y Don.

“This year will be an even grander event to which visitors and families are all very welcome. We will have stalls, refreshments, souvenirs, games, music and the Batala Drummers, and of course our famous mascot Stormy Stan”.

Central to the whole day will be the opportunity to see the lifeboats, meet the crew and look around the boathouse. There will also be special guided tours of the all new Shannon Lifeboat the William F Yates.

At 2pm the lifeboats will be preparing to take to the waters to demonstrate their capabilities and will be joined at 2.45pm by the Coastguard Air Sea Rescue Helicopter for a joint exercise which will no doubt be the highlight of the day.

Wheelhouse Tours

During this year’s open day we will be providing a rare opportunity for visitors to be shown by Crew members inside the wheelhouse of Llandudno’s state-of-the-art Shannon Lifeboat. 6 people can be accommodated at a time and tours will be every 15 minutes from 11.30 until 14.15.
