Welcome to the Compass Pipelines Peel Traditional Boat Weekend



  PL15 - Come and sample the legendary Peel hospitality.


31st July - 2nd August 2015

The aims of Peel Traditional Boat Weekend:

  • to foster and promote interest and pride in traditional craft

  • to encourage owners to maintain and restore them for future generations

  • to make traditional craft more accessible to the general public

'Peel Traditional Boat Weekend' was first run in 1990 and on the basis that 'if it aint broke dont fix it' the format will be much the same as in previous years.  It is a relaxed event with the focus very much on the boats, the people and the sea.

Its time to catch up with friends old and new, admire all those beautiful boats nor try to build a dinghy from scratch.

As always the event is free to boats which meet the qualifying criteria and of course, crews are not forgotten.  We have become known for the traditional Manx hospitality we provide.  This includes kippers for breakfast, a commemorative gift for each boat and "time enough" to sit and chat.

We hope that we can welcome YOU to Peel.  Joimn us and we can assure you of the best of times in great company...
