THE THREE PEAKS YACHT RACE is more than a boat race.  It is one of the world's oldest and best endurance events, and for Barmouth its a great day in town.  The 40th Anniversary race commenced at Barmouth on Saturday 17 June 2017 at 1pm. The sun came out, Batala Bermo  drummed and people on the quay and breakwater applauded as the boats left harbour for the start line out in the bay, heading Fort William, stopping only for the runners to ascend Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and finally Ben Nevis. Next years race will begin on Saturday June 9th 2018.  More details, regular race reports, satellite tracking info etc. can be found at www.threepeaksyachtrace.co.uk

 

                   

"THERE IS NO BETTER WALK THAN THAT THROUGH FROM BARMOUTH TO DOLGELLAU OTHER THAN FROM DOLGELLAU TO BARMOUTH"..... John Ruskin.     The proposed  path beside the railway linking the bridge and harbour, will further enhance the walk which so impressed Ruskin, giving pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users a safer route than the existing narrow pavement between sheer rockface and the main A496.  For more information see  Barmouth Viaduct Access Group website

Was JRR Tolkien's  creation of Middle Earth inspired by Barmouth?

Local resident and sculptor Mr Frank Cocksey believes so Mr Cocksey's work includes "The Last Haul" on the harbour, sculpted from marble salvaged from the Bronze Bell wreck of 1709. The sculpture represents three generations of fishermen.  The Bronze Bell shipwreck exhibition may be seen in the tourist season above Davy Jones' Locker Restaurant just a short walk along the quay.
