Clwb Hwylio Pwllheli Sailing Club moved to its new home in July 2015 – the fifth home since being established in 1958.
Co-located with the Welsh National Sailing Academy and Event Centre in Plas Heli, the club occupies the upper floor of the new iconic building with its contemporary design and layout. Members and guests benefit from the superb Plas Heli facilities including restaurant, bar and the popular summer beach café bar with balconies and sea views.
The Welsh National Sailing Academy opened its doors in 2015 and for those who remember 2007, the old club house is still across the dinghy park so you will be able to rekindle fond memories. Why are we taking the fleet back to Pwllheli, here’s what Richard Anderton (Event Manager Fireball Worlds 2015) had to say:
“Bringing the Fireball worlds to the UK meant that we had to offer the international fleet a prestigious venue that could excel on event management, delivery, and value for money. Plas Heli stood out as being the best option. Having made the decision, the club were a pleasure to work with – Nothing was too much trouble, and their previous experience in organising large events shone through. Delivery lived up to expectation, Plas Heli ran a world class event – handling day to day issues seamlessly and extending a very warm welcome to competitors and visitors alike.”
