The annual Cong – Galway Sailing Race, Europe’s oldest and longest inland water sailing race, will take place this year on Saturday, June 25th, 2022

The race starts from Lisloughrey Pier in Cong, Co. Mayo early in the morning and makes it’s way down through Upper and Lower Lough Corrib to the finish line at Corrib Village on the River Corrib that evening. Restrictions permitting, a bus will be available to bring participants from Galway to Cong on the morning of the event to enable sailors to leave trailers and cars in Galway for recovery & transport after the event.
