Let's get Sailing back in Holymed, We had 11 of these model yachts here years ago and Cogger is offering to fix yours at cost of parts. He already has 12 rechargeable batteries full charged ready to go!
Contact Cogger via the Sailing Club, alternatively, if you're in Holyhead, just ask for me around lifeboat station or pop into club to have free cup of tea. Then lets get your to have a go.

Newsletter from the Commodore
It is now a couple of weeks on from Storm Emma, and it is probably time to give some update to the wider membership of how this has impacted on us all here.
Firstly we have identified at least 20 boats belonging to members that have been lost or damaged – and some of those were members’ homes. The tragedy of this, the heartache and the incredible disruption to people’s lives is immeasurable. Our hearts go out to them.
The scale of the disaster in ‘official’ terms is very big, and the complications with insurance companies, people affected, government bodies and other officials, plus the growing number of official contractors appointed to resolve different bits of the mess, has made the recovery process appear to be slow to start off. But thankfully, there is some visible progress happening now.
The environmental damage needs to be contained and this has been underway for most of the week. The next stage is for the boats to be recovered.
