The Sailing Club has received this update from Rhian Pritchard on behalf of Dylan Williams – Head of Regulation and Economic Development, Anglesey County Council.
As you aware, it was agreed during the Multi Agency Strategy Meeting yesterday (Thursday 8th March) that the Control & Co-ordination response will now be led by Port of Holyhead (Stena Line Ports) and the Isle of Anglesey County Council.
The Statutory Organisations involved in this incident will be meeting on Monday 12th March (Incident Control & Co-ordination Group).
Whilst recognising your interest in the ongoing efforts, and eagerness to support, attendance will now be limited to the organisations with a statutory responsibility in the response effort.
The statutory organisations will consider and agree on appropriate arrangements to keep you and other interested parties informed of progress.

One of the club's directors, Mike Ripley, has asked for this information to be shared with all our members.

Following discussions over the last few weeks the Management Committee have reached a decision on a new contract with Caernarfon Harbour Trust to service our club’s moorings for 2018.
We are still looking at options for the future but it was decided, during these discussions, that in order to achieve maximum use for our moorings for this season we would draw up a contract with the CHT. The work is anticipated to take about 3 - 4 days and is programmed to be completed during the first two weeks in March.
The options we have been considering include:
- The club obtaining a suitable craft for the Bosun to carry out this work in future years. A number of vessels have been considered but a full business benefit study will be required along with an analysis of how well the contract with Caernarfon Harbour Trust works.
- Possibility of contracts with other contractors who own suitable craft
In reviewing the options there are concerns over suitability, responsibility and insurance cover as well as costs and reliability.
The contract with CHT provides suitable insurance for the vessel and the planned works; our Bosun, Brett, will be tasked with checking and photographing the mooring risers and connections; the trots will be straightened and repositioned so that all our moorings are in the prescribed area.
We are looking forward to a great season with well spaced moorings!
Our heartfelt thanks to all involved in making this happen.
