Plas Heli

The Welsh National Sailing Academy and Events Centre .


The date for the 2014 Hwyl yr Heli is Saturday 16th of August 2014.

The day will be organised by Plas Heli's Community Development Officer David Hughes. The event was a great success last year and we hope to grow the event this year by further developing the established themes.

We are delighted to report that the marine works has started - the bund on the west side of the harbour has been constructed and the dredging is on-going and should be completed before Easter - although the dredging of the new area for the dedicated visitor and events berths, to the north of the marina, may take a little longer.

The whole of the marine works including the new quay will be completed in June this year. This photograph shows the construction of the new quay wall which will form part of the access to the new pontoons.

We are very pleased to inform you that the main contractor for the iconic academy building has been appointed - The following is a Gwynedd Council Press Release:

Wynne Construction to build the National Sailing Academy and Events Centre at Pwllheli

logogwyneddA north Wales company has been appointed by Gwynedd Council to construct the iconic National Sailing Academy and Events Centre building at Pwllheli.

The contract between Gwynedd Council and Wynne Construction allows the work on site to begin in April 2014 with the construction period to last 12 months.

This latest contract completes the package of contracts associated with the £8.3 million National Sailing Academy and Events Centre project, which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government. The road development is completed and the marine works is currently underway within the harbour.

hub1Work has started on the new Hub building - the new (28m x 12m) storage shed for the user groups. This will be a fantastic facility and will assist the growth in the outdoor activity sections which include, amongst others, the rowing club, kayaking club and sailing.

This work is being caried out by Gelli and will be completed by the end of March 2014.


On your visit to the Club over the Christmas holiday you will notice that a building site compound has been set up adjacent to the Club marquee.

This is the compound set up by Jones Bros - the contractor appointed to undertake the marine works as part of the Academy project.

They will start work in the New Year and the first stage is to construct a bund located to the west of the marina. This work is expected to take about four weeks. 

The next stage in early Febuary is to start on the dredging work - starting with the new basin for the Academy visitor and event pontoons. 

When the basin has been completed the dredger will then proceed to dredge under the Hafan marina pontoons. At the same time work will start on the new quay wall - adjacent to the new basin.

"During 2013, Pwllheli Rowing Club has gone from strength to strength. As a direct result of the work of the Outdoor Group and the "Miri Morfa” event the awareness of the club and the club's membership numbers have grown. While we remain a relatively small club in size, we have put great effort into the racing season which proved successful, with a youth girls team racing for the first time in years!

At the end of the season, progress was made with Porthmadog Rowing Club to look at further collaboration in terms of training and fun "racing" against each other. Please have a look at when we will be meeting over the weekends in Winter - and prepare for next season!
