The Achill Yawl Sailing Festival (Cruinniú Bádóirí Acla) is an annual event that stretches throughout the summer months, from June to September. It features a series of races involving traditional Achill yawl sailing boats at a number of locations around Achill Island and Clew Bay. The yawl festival has grown considerably in recent years, signalling a revival in the construction of these traditional sailing craft.
