CHPSC Management Team

Back to Boating in Pwllheli as found relavant to the facilities of the Welsh National Sailing Academy and Event Centre. 

The work of the Task Force is to ensure that our return to boating is achieved as soon as possible, in a safe, considerate, and responsible manner.

This is achieved by being prepared for the various stages of the easing of restrictions.

We will publish our strategies and policies and carry out risk assessments as found relevant to the activities carried out at the facilities of the Welsh National Sailing Academy and Event Centre.
