Flags3CHPSC News:

A race around the "Tremadog Triangle" took place on Saturday the 18th July in a gentle 6 kt Northerly breeze with clearing skys after a day of rain. The 5pm start due to tides worked well,  and 6 boats came to the line.  "Jackknife" won the race in IRC with "No idea" winning the NHC class.  On Sunday two members completed laps of the Tremadog Triangle - "Theia" and "Sea Minx"  who now heads the NHC leader board. "Jac Y Do"  continues to lead the IRC  fleet. "Theia"  also completed a lap of the Commodores Challenge (St Tuds islands and Carreg Y Trai) and leads the NHC class with an excellent time of 1hr 48 mins corrected. 

Planning for the "Stripped Down" Spinlock IRC Welsh National Championships  continues with a "Zoom" meeting of the club racing committee held last Sunday evening.  After confirming the proposed plans,  the event was "re-booted" with a newsletter going out with all the details, and a much reduced price structure. There will be racing for all types of boat, including Cruisers, IRC Class 1 and 2  inshore  and ISORA coastal courses, with race management considering  the shorthanded crews when setting courses - expect less races per day and longer legs. The "stripped down" championship was published in the UK, Irish and European yachting press on Thursday.  ( Yachts and Yachting, Afloat  and EuroSail)  -  Full details at the event website here  

CHIPAC  (Clwb Hwylio Ieuenctid Pwllheli A'r Cylch) our youth sailing section have nearly finished their preparations and protocols following the lockdown, and start their 2020 activities next Friday, which is a credit to the hard work put in by Gwyndaf, Jane and James - and many more.  We look forward to seeing young sailors training next week. CHIPAC2009Many club members have started their sailing journeys with CHIPAC and gone on to represent the club at regional, national and international level, including the Americas Cup!  More information about CHIPAC can be found here

 "Back to Boating" - Task Force Update 

 Vice Commodore Gerallt Williams, our Task Force leader reported as follows:

"Track and Trace" is an essential element of our back to boating protocol, and one that is mandated for the leisure sector by Welsh Government.  We have two track and trace email addresses, one for the Bar as highlighted below (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and one for the compound and pontoons (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) - it only takes a few seconds with a smart phone to record your visit, this helps us comply with COVID regulations, and you are assured we  operate strict data protection protocols.

* If you are, or intend being a user of the Plas Heli pontoons, please read and adhere to the pontoon protocols which are available here *

* If you are, or intend being a user of the Plas Heli compound for dinghy sailing, please read and adhere to the Plas Heli compound protocol - available here *
