Commodore’s Welcome

Welcome to Abersoch Sailing Club / Croeso i CWLB HWYLIO ABERSOCH

On behalf of the Abersoch Sailing Club Committee, I am delighted to welcome you to our website!

We usually operate a seasonal sailing programme, based around the weekends, running from late July to the August Bank Holiday Weekend. Our races last between 30-40 minutes with the results based on average lap times to make racing more accessible to novices whilst allowing more seasoned racers to get their fix.

In addition to our Weekend Series’, we offer mid-week racing on Wednesdays, as well as the popular junior race training session held every Monday morning in August by our qualified RYA Race Coaches. The Club also runs a thriving social calendar, that was unfortunately cancelled in 2020 due to COVID, which includes beach curry and paella evenings, BBQs and the infamous ASC Bar Crawl.

For the 2021 season, we are delighted to announce that we will extend our racing programme with the introduction of a May Bank Holiday series. We are also delighted to announce that we will be trialling the introduction of small keelboat racing, which will take place around June and July.

The Club is also completely run by volunteers and is the reason we are able to keep our membership costs so low. We are always looking for volunteers to support the clubs activities. If you enjoy helping out on the patrol boats (minimum PB 2 required) or want to learn more about race management or mark laying, ASC can help you develop your skills and interests in the different areas of sailing. We believe if all members can give a little back to the club, it will be a fantastic, thriving place to sail.

Please explore our website and if you have any further questions, we would be delighted to answer them! You can contact us through filling out the form on our ‘Contact Us’ page, or by emailing abersochsailingclub@gmail.com

We hope to see you on the water with us soon!
