This summer was a very busy one for Mari Davies from Bethesda and her sailing partner Sarah Norbury, as they spent 6 weeks abroad competing in the international 420 fleet.
The first event of the summer was in Keiler Woche, Germany. A massive international regatta attended by thousands with racing across numerous fleets. Stormy weather and fickle wind meant that only four races were held in the two racing days.
Mae gwaith adeiladu wedi cychwyn ar gynllun £4 miliwn i ddatblygu adeilad Academi Hwylio Pwllheli a fydd yn cwblhau’r pecyn o fuddsoddiadau cyfalaf yn ardal harbwr y dref.
Mae’r dywarchen gyntaf wedi ei thorri ar safle Academi Hwylio Genedlaethol Cymru ym Mhenrhyn Glan Don, Pwllheli. Bydd yr adeilad yn rhan allweddol o’r pecyn £8.3 miliwn a ddiogelwyd gan Gyngor Gwynedd i gryfhau’r diwydiant morol a hwylio yn lleol.
Mae cynllun yr Academi Hwylio Genedlaethol a Chanolfan Ddigwyddiadau wedi ei gydariannu drwy Gronfa Datblygu Rhanbarthol Ewrop drwy Lywodraeth Cymru a Chyngor Gwynedd.
Bydd yr adeilad eiconig hwn yn ganolfan i gynnal digwyddiadau a chystadleuthau hwylio gyda’r gorau yn y byd. Bydd hefyd yn adnodd canolog i’r gymuned leol ac i’r diwydiant awyr agored ym Mhwllheli a’r ardal gyfagos.
We are only a few weeks from the inaugural ‘Spinlock IRC Welsh Championships’ hosted this year by Pwllheli Sailing Club on 1st to 3rd August.
The event has used the successful 2013 J Cup hosted by PSC as a spring board with the added award of the ‘Spinlock IRC’ regional title for Wales. PSC Commodore Stephen Tudor said: ‘The Club is very proud to be offered the opportunity to host the first Welsh IRC Championships and is delighted to see competitors already entered from Ireland, Isle of Man, Scotland and Liverpool in addition to the local competitive fleet. Entries are still being received and we still have free berths available for the event on the new Academy pontoons’.
