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, crew and visitors to and from boats on Conwy River swinging moorings, pontoons, and the marinas at Conwy and Deganwy.

Visiting Conwy by boat? If you arrange to pick up a mooring in the harbour, the launch will take you ashore and the Club is just a 2 minute walk. All visiting yachtsmen are very welcome.

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.

Trinity House Notice to Mariners 19/2020

Discontinuation of the Differential GPS Service

The General Lighthouse Authorities are planning to shut down the Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) from 31st March 2022. The DGPS service is a land-based enhancement to GPS which was designed to increase the accuracy of the system during the period when an intentional location error was introduced into GPS to make it less accurate. This error was removed in 2000.

Please click here to read the full notice on the Trinity House website.
