It's been great seeing more members back in Pwllheli since the relaxation of travel restrictions , and we look forward to welcoming more members this weekend, as self contained accommodation is opened up. See below for the latest information regarding our home - Plas Heli
With further easing of restrictions expected to be announced today, we will provide an update on the club website on Monday, 13th July should there be any significant changes, and after the RYA has had an opportunity to update their guidance.
A new Notice to Mariners was published this week, and can viewed here
We continue to consult with our partners, with a view to update the plan for the IRC Welsh Nationals, for a "stripped down" championship offering a variety of racing, anticipating a relaxation on organised activity later in the month. Whatever happens, we hope to facilitate some great sailing opportunities.
We wish Paul Roberts (Hafan Pwllheli staff) a speedy recovery following his recent hospital admission .
Congratulations to Team Mojito for a class win and 2nd overall in a highly competitive ISORA coastal race in Dublin last weekend, and good luck for Race 2 of the Irish Coastal series tomorrow.

Club What’s On:
Regatta - It is hoped we may be able to hold the Regatta this year, but is largely dependent on Government advice around "organised activity" - hopefully an update on July 10th from Welsh Government will allow us to go ahead with the Regatta, in some form on Saturday July 25th - we hope to provide an update on Monday 13th July.
The "Tremadog Triangle" and "Commodore’s Challenge" are available for members to attempt – see the website for details of both racetracks here
Adhoc racing tomorrow - Saturday 11th July - details on the racing "WhatsApp" group. Reply to this email to be added to the group.
Work is ongoing for a "soft" opening of Plas Heli next Tuesday, offering drinks and snacks on the terraces. In our update next Friday, we hope to provide more detail regarding the bar and catering facilities on offer, after next weeks initial opening. It will be necessary to email Plas Heli before purchasing drinks, or using the facilities, for track and trace purposes.
Under the current Welsh Government regulations, only our deck space will be open, though the intention is to allow access through the building and to the restrooms.
Thought for the Day:
