The Plas Heli safety and race management bridge is ready for action for the RYA UK Youth National Championships in April.

The Bridge at Plas Heli overlooks the beach launching area and race areas.

From this room the race management team can also see the channel into the harbour and the pontoons where the safety RIBS are berthed.

The equipment include three separate VHF Shore Base Satations, wifi and dedicated internet connection as well as site-wide WiFi.

These are for the Plas Heli Pontoon customers and for adult camping use on Cei Heli.

The cabins are accessed via a coded keypad - pontoon customers can appluy for their boat specific code to be applied to both cabins.
