The North Wales Cruising Club was founded in 1928 for yachtsmen and boat owners who enjoy sailing to the beautiful anchorages and marinas of Anglesey and the Irish Sea.

On the water events are arranged throughout the year, including weekend trips to the Menai Strait and around Anglesey as well as longer trips which take advantage of the expansive sailing area to the Isle of Man, Ireland and the West Coast of Scotland.

We offer classroom and online RYA training courses at very competitive rates which are cheaper than many of the sailing schools in the area.

The Club has its own launch for ferrying members and crew to and from boats, across the harbour and to the marinas at Conwy and Deganwy.

We welcome visitors to the clubhouse which is conveniently located near the town quay, inside the Conwy town walls and just behind the “Liverpool Arms” public house. The clubhouse is open to members for access to showers and utility facilities and to visitors during bar opening hours.

Visitors can gain access by ringing the bell. A key-card may be hired by visitors staying longer than a day for £5.00 returnable at the end of the stay, in order to gain access to showers and facilities.

We have a comfortable lounge bar, coffee machine, showers, washing machine, tumble drier and kitchen, as well as the chart room which is used for our training programme and social events.

The club has a great social scene with an extensive programme of traditional and modern social events throughout the year.

Morlais Tidal Energy Public Meeting

We have had a message from the Morlais Tidal Stream Energy Project, announcing a public meeting this afternoon.

We would like to invite you to an information drop in session on the Morlais tidal stream energy project. The event will be another opportunity to learn more about the project and for you to have a say on the development.

30/07/2019 – We will be at the Trearddur Bay Village Hall, LL65 2YJ between 4pm & 7pm 

The main aim of Morlais is to benefit local communities, the economy and environment through the generation of renewable low carbon electricity using tidal stream energy. The first stage of the project looks to secure consent for the development of Morlais, with community consultation playing a key part in this. Submission of the consent application is planned for September.

More information will be available at the event, and our staff will be on hand to answer your questions.

We would be delighted to welcome you and we would also be grateful it if you could extend this invitation to groups or individuals who you think may have an interest in the project.

Please contact us if you would like further information or to discuss the project in more detail.
