We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the opportunity to host the 2020 edition of the RYA Youth National Championships. We will work closely with RYA, RYA Cymru Wales, Gwynedd Council and Pwllheli Sailing Club to deliver a fantastic Championship, on and off the water.
We will bring into play all of the excellent facilities at the Sailing Academy which will provide easy access to the superb racing waters of Cardigan Bay from our spacious and secure compound. The quay and pontoon facilities will enable easy and safe access to all of the safety RIBs all of which are within sight of the race command bridge on the second floor of the Academy.
Our large hall, restaurant and café/bar will be augmented by the use of our marquee and the old sailing club building so that all competitors can be accommodated comfortably.
Pwllheli has a long history of hosting major championships and the RYA Youth National Championship is one of the most prestigious events where we can see potential GBR Olympians in action and I am sure that all competitors will enjoy our special warm welcome. ”.
There is now another reason for you to visit Plas Heli. We have recently installed a brand new KIS Washing Machine, that can be accessed 24 hours a day. Perfect for clothes, duvets, wetsuit drying and all at a reasonable price.
You can even spend some time in our Bar and Restaurant to wait for your washing to be done. Located to the front of the building, you can't miss it on the way down to the beach. Wash and dry your laundry for as little as £6!
It was all go at Plas Heli today! Today the bad weather didn’t put a stop to the visiting Swedish Sailing Olympic teams training, as they made good use of the Hall for checking their boats. Maxine Rhodes the Welsh Cycling Volunteer Coordinator also visited to discuss the exciting Social Cycle Plas Heli Group which has recently started.
A warm welcome from Plas Heli & Pen Llyn to the Swedish Olympic 49erFX team who are training here this month in preperation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
