Following discussions with our local Coastguard Station we have the following guidelines to help you to dispose of your out-of-date or damaged flares. The Holyhead Coastguard Station can take flares for disposal but you MUST telephone them to make arrangements as only certain officers are certified to handle these “Time Expired Pyrotechnics” (TEP) .
Call Holyhead Coastguard Station on 01407 762 051/763 911
You'll need to tell the Maritime and Coastguard Agency operation centre:
- how many flares you have to dispose of
- how old they are
- what condition they are in

Race 3 17th December
With a WSW wind 12kt gusting up to 18kt at the start of the race the 3 yachts were all out early for the 13:50 revised start time to avoid clashing with the ferry schedule. Lily got a bit out of place in the melee around the Porth Y Felin moorings and started behind the two J’s but got a reasonably good spinnaker hoist taking advantage of the dead downwind leg out of the harbour. The two J’s bore away to facilitate their asymmetrics but with the winds gusting as the racers approached the Aluminium Jetty they all suffered broaches with Lily heading horribly close to the jetty and still on starboard pole! At the very last minute Lily’s crew managed to release the pole and drop the spinnaker but, having just got back to within spitting distance of the other two yachts, lost a lot of time in the subsequent broach.

The winds from the north were colder than we were used but gave us the opportunity to set a long windward leg to Langdon Ridge. Prior to start there was a good deal of preparation to be done but all four yachts made it in time to have some practice with the new crew members signed up through the club’s website Crewing Opportunities page.
The course was set as Start,
