It is with great sadness we report the passing of Mike Raw.
Mike Raw, from Macclesfield, has had a boat on the Llyn Peninsula for many years, and one of the first to take a berth in the marina after its construction.
Mike was always the heart and soul of many parties at both the Sailing Club and in the Marina. Mike took a keen interest in all water sports, including yacht racing on J35 Banzai, and cruising on his series of “Raw Deal” motor-boats, and latterly Jet Skiing.
Mike always took time to pass on his boat handling skills to new owners and berth-holders and was a great friend to many of us.
Mike leaves behind his wife Caron, son James and daughter Emily, and a big void in all our lifes.

Please note: The Cruising programme will be reviewed in accordance with the guidance of our Governing Body, RYA and RYA Cymru Wales, for clubs and sailors and also the instruction of Government and all appropriate Health Authorities.
You can leave all the gear aboard and come out cruiser racing. The RYA’s NHC handicap system caters for that and race control will set a separate start and course for cruising boats. The start will be 5 mins after the IRC start and the course generally shorter and simpler with the intention of all boats getting back to the marina at the same time for après sail.
Please spread the word and encourage cruising boats in the marina to turn out.

Work has started on the Grib Groyne at the entrance to Pwllheli Harbour.
This replaces the old groyne which was built when the marina was constructed and had become badley damaged over the years.
This groyne is constructed of substantial rock armour and it is hoped that this will reduce the amount of sand and gravel being deposited in the channel.
