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 club has RYA Training Centre Status

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs Sheila Crayfourd earlier this month. Sheila was the Hon Secretary at HSC for 10 years, and her husband Ted was Commodore in 1989 and 90.
Sheila’s funeral will take place at Kettering Crematorium on Tuesday 30th July at 12.30 and afterwards at her son’s home in Holcot. Any member who knew Sheila is warmly welcome to attend.
The family are also hoping to scatter her ashes at sea in Holyhead Bay during the week of 6th Sept – so anyone wanting to make contact should get in touch with the Sailing Club office to find out more details.
Sue James, Company Sec.
