Join us for the annual Pembroke River Rally!

Organised by Pembroke Town Council, the River Rally is a popular, annual event. It is a rare opportunity to see the barrage gate lowered to allow boats to enter the Castle Pond and, in so doing, maintain the right of navigation up the Pembroke River on behalf of the people of Pembroke.

In previous years, over 50 boats have joined so why not take part this year!

The normal procedure for events is: 

  • Assemble at Crow Pool and await the arrival of flagship with the Mayor
  • Prepare to depart for Pembroke. A safety and rescue craft will direct you to form a convoy in-line astern following the flagship. Once the convoy is formed and underway, you are requests to keep station.
  • Arrive at Castle Pond.
  • Moorings are available in Castle Pond but please keep clear of the slipway.
  • Depart Castle Pond.

Vessels must have a draught below 1.5m to enter Crow Pool.

For future information, listen to VHF Channel 37 and call the Pilot boat 'Rally Control'.

Full timings for this event will be confirmed nearer the time.
