2017 Poster

The 2017 Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival Posters have just been printed! Thanks to Gary McMahon and the designers at Copper Reed Studio for yet another magnificent design!

The poster features a Gandelow; a traditional wooden boat used on the River Shannon. They are clinker-built, flat bottomed and up to 23ft in length. Used for centuries by fishing communities for catching salmon and cutting reeds, the Shannon Gandelow is experiencing a revival and can be seen at regattas and festivals during the Summer months. We are always delighted to have the Gandelow gang taking part in the Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival!
