Cardiff Bay is non-tidal and one of the most accommodating stretches of water for boats of all sizes in the country. Hosted by two great yacht clubs with camping available, there will be river-raiding up the Ely and Taff Rivers, racing for boats of all sizes and a grand parade of sail. For those who wish, boats can lock-out through the barrage (an experience not to be missed) where a race for larger boats and intrepid smaller ones will be staged in the Bristol Channel.
There are many shoreside attractions - A vibrant waterfront with ample public pontoons
Café’s bars and shopping - Art & History - Maritime Heritage
The Millennium Centre, a world class centre for performing arts
The Historic Norwegian Church
Welsh Assembly Government Building (open to the public)
