Following advice received this morning (18th March 2020) from RYA and RYA Cymru Wales the following action has been taken:
In accordance with the latest instructions the bar and restaurant at Plas Heli is now closed until further notice.
We will be following the guidance of our Governing Body, RYA Cymru Wales, for clubs and sailors and also the instruction of Welsh Government and all appropriate Health Authorities.
We will continue to scenario plan, with Plas Heli, as best we can – hoping for the best but considering the worst – and will endeavour to keep you fully informed as we navigate this serious challenge.
It is with great regret that we inform you that the RYA Youth Championships 2020 has been postponed.
Following the latest Government advice regarding the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 RYA Youth National Championships is postponed. The prestigious regatta, the UK's premier youth racing event, was due to take place from April 3 to 10 and hosted at The Welsh National Sailing Academy and Event Centre with assistance from CHPSC and RYA Cymru Wales.Around 750 young people and adults from all over the UK were expected to be on site.
However, on Monday evening the Government advised against mass gatherings, to minimise social contact and avoid non-essential travel to curb the spread of the virus.In light of this all non-essential RYA Racing activity has been suspended until April 30 in the first instance when the situation will be reviewed.It will be the first time since the Youth Nationals began in 1978 that the event has not taken place as planned.Our intention along with RYA and partners will be to run the event later in the year and we will now work with the youth classes to deliver a new plan. More details on this will be announced in due course.
‘Everyone in CHPSC, Plas Heli, The Welsh National Sailing Academy and Event Centre, RYA Cymru Wales and Gwynedd Council are extremely disappointed that this prestigious event has been postponed, but all agree and respect the decision taken in what is extremely difficult times, we fully appreciate the need to keep everyone safe. We will be working closely with RYA to host a Championship later in the year and we hope to see you all here at the next event.’
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.
Paramount is the intention just to enjoy sailing and winning is not all. Cruiser racing is not about standing on ceremony and harsh interpretation of the rules but about the joy of sailing. For that reason there will be a prize for the second to last boat so there is always a reason to keep going and finish the course.
The Club is trying to organise a cruise to Greystones in conjunction with Greystones Sailing Club for the Bank Holiday 8/9/10th May. It is also the 75th anniversary of VE Day and the UK Government made the change to the Friday rather than the usual first Monday in the month in recognition.
Also an informal cruise to the Isle of Mann TT’s Saturday 30th May to 12th June. If you have never been the atmosphere on the island is great and you will be amazed at the speeds achieved on normal roads by the motorcycle riders. (Please note the TT is Cancelled due to coronavirus)
