Croeso i Gymru – Welcome to Wales
I would like to extend a warm invitation to you all to Pwllheli on behalf of the sailing club. We are delighted to be chosen to host the International Finn World Masters Championship in 2012.
Clwb Hwylio Pwllheli Sailing Club is an established events centre with a proud record of hosting World, European and UK National Championships. Situated close to beautiful scenery of Snowdonia on the Lleyn peninsula, our sailing waters are open to the prevailing winds with minimal tidal influences. It is a short sail from our sheltered launching beach to the race area which can be seen from the shore. Our club forms part of the Hafan Pwllheli marina complex, which provides secure boat and trailer compounds, chandlery shops, parking for motorhomes and all the facilities associated with a modern sailing club.
This is Olympic year when the eyes of the world are focussed on the highest level competition in all the Games’ disciplines. Sailing is no different and the International Finn class has a proud record of achievement as the pedigree single-hander for 60 years of Olympic competition.
I know you will have a memorable World championship in Pwllheli – both on and off the water – and I look forward to greeting you all.
Events Committee Chairman.
