A hundred members and guests gathered at Plas Heli for the Clwb Hwylio Pwllheli Sailing Club’s annual Christmas ball and prize giving, where Commodore Eifion Owen handed over the Club Burgee to incoming Commodore Jane Butterworth, who during her address to members and guests, introduced her Vice Commodore Gerallt Williams, and Rear Commodore Mark Thompson for the next two years. Eifion also announced Hon Secretary Stephen Tudor becomes the clubs President.

Eifion gave a witty speech about his experience as Commodore, and the members gave him a resounding applause for his hard work during the last two years.

Members were treated to a delicious Christmas themed three course meal, with fine wines from the Bar, in the festively decorated Gorwel restaurant.
