Peter and Vicky campaigned J109 Mojito, not only in the ISORA Series which they won overall but also in the Fastnet Race, the D2D race from Dun Laoghaire to Dingle and also the winners of the ISORA Global Exhibitions Offshore Series in Pwllheli.

Congratulations on this fantastic honour.

CHIPAC J80Fourteen of CHIPAC's members enjoyed two hours of exciting sailing Friday evening,on board a boat a lot larger and faster than the small dinghies they are used to sailing on Mondays and Fridays during the Summer.

The strong Northerly breeze kept the sea fairly flat and the boat heeled and sailed quickly past Gimlet Rock and on towards Carreg y Defaid with all the children being given the opportunity to take the helm for a short while.

Everyone enjoyed the experience and hope to get a similar opportunity next year. They are very grateful to the owner, Mark and Jo Thompson, and to Tomos Tudor for steering the boat.

Mari Davies, a past member of CHIPAC and a very successful International sailor, was on board to coach the youngsters and we are very grateful to her for her generosity to our club.

It was a memorable night and one that will provide a topic for many conversations I am sure.


BatonArrive"The Commonwealth Games Queens Baton arrived in Pwllheli today, welcomed by many of the local school children.

Plas Heli, Pwllheli welcomed the Baton team with a reception & buffet, also enjoyed by CHPSC members, who took the opportunity to contribute valuable funds to our local youth sailing project Chipac - Clwb Hwylio Ieuenctid Pwllheli a'r Cylch, to show their appreciation."
