Holyhead Sailing Club is ideally located in Holyhead Harbour with its historic harbour wall, the longest in the UK giving safe access at all states of the tide. The Sailing Club has swinging moorings with a launch service manned daily throughout the season. Holyhead Harbour is ideal for cruising to locations in Ireland, the Isle of Man and Scotland. A lively and social club we hold regular sailing and social events, cruises, racing for dinghies, squibs and yachts
The following is an extract from the minute book of the Porth -y-Felin Sailng club from which this club is descended.
"The object of forming this sailing boat club is first, to draw together the members in a friendly companionship as the opportunity arises, second, to qualify the members of the Club in the management of small sailing craft and third, for a pleasure resort to those who wish to enjoy themsleves in such sport in their leisure hours."
To this end Holyhead Sailing club members have nearly 300 boats ranging from Optimist Dinghies to large bluewater cruisers. There is a thriving Dinghy Racing fleet, a substantial Squib Racing fleet and over 200 cruisers and cruiser/racers many of whom regularily take part in club events.

The latest addition to the clubhouse is a chart showing all the lights in St George’s Chanel and Irish Sea flashing in their correct sequence. Many thanks (and congratulations) to the Club President Graham Drinkwater for creating the electronics for this, and to Stuart Williams for framing it.

On Saturday 23rd June Holyhead Sailing Club held one of the CRYC events in the 2018 series.
The club has worked hard over the years to provide facilities for the youth and cadet sailing participants and with the expansion of the club’s facilities for the yachting and keelboat classes following the downturn in March it was great to see this event so well prepared for and so many people, both from the club and the wider audience, involved on another wonderful day in Holyhead Harbour.

ISORA Race 7 and 8
Two yachts from our racing fleet took part in the ISORA races 7 and 8 from Liverpool to the Isle Of Man and back to a virtual finish line mid Irish Sea allowing the competitors to go to their destinations. Ruth takes first place overall - her first race win in the 2108 race series and Nigel Ingram's new J109 Jetstream from Holyhead came an impressive second place overall. Glyn Sheffield with his replacement Farr 40, Espresso Martini Too, came 5th overall so an excellent result for the members from Holyhead.
