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.

The Club has its own launches 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.

Bart’s Bash 2018

This year was yet another fantastic Bart’s Bash event.

There are some great shots in this album of most of the boats that took part thanks to Bruce and Vix Kennedy:

Thanks to everyone that took part, making it so much fun. The results should be up on the Bart’s Bash website soon but as the duration of the race matched the planned duration within a few minutes we are not expecting many changes from the order we crossed the line.

Bart’s Bash!

Our Bart’s Bash event will be held on Saturday the 15th of September this year, and the briefing will be on Friday 14th September at 21:00 in the NWCC clubhouse. The race is always well attended and our race has always been one of the top money raisers in the world so lets see if we can keep that up. Sign ups are made on the Barts Bash Website and the link is https://www.bartsbash.com/participant-sign-up and select North Wales Cruising Club as the Sailing Venue.
