Cymraeg

Due to the latest Welsh Government Level 4  Alert COVID  restrictions,  the bar and  restaurant is open for take away service only (access via the side entrance and rear deck)  with  the indoor facilities at Plas Heli closed.  The Plas Heli outdoor facilities - event pontoons and compound  are now open for outdoor activities by maximum groups of six from two  households, and organised outdoor activity for Children and under 18's such as CHIPAC . Cross border travel allowed from April 12th

RYA Elite squad training is also permitted and takes place under the supervision of RYA Cymru Wales.

The review on April 20th confirmed the following changes

From April 24th

> Groups of six allowed to meet outdoors and can be from up to six households plus any number under 11's (this removes the two household restriction)

From April 26th

> Outdoor hospitality can open

> Organised activity outdoors for up to 30 people can resume. This means racing can start and crucially if taking part in organised racing, we can use crew numbers of 6 or 80% IRC number, whichever the greater.

 updated April 20th   2021

The 2021 season starts on 1st April and the demand for the berths on the Plas Heli pontoons is already exceptional, we anticipate a 100% occupancy this season!

We are extremely grateful for the mammoth effort of our volunteer workforce in carrying out maintenance and preparation works on the pontoons, including the jet-washing of the walkways.

So, we are now all set and ready for the season!

For those who have not yet completed the '2021 on-line application form' (here) we strongly recommend that this is done as soon as possible. Berths will be allocated on a first come basis.

Priority for berths will be given to the customers who commit to a seasonal berth.

We have already moved the versa-dock to provide additional berths on the north side of the main walkway and we are now looking at other options to help with the increased demand especially in the peak season. When these plans have been developed, we will share the information via the CHPSC e-newsletter and on the Plas Heli web site.

2021 is going to be busy - the sailing events will include many Class Events, Four National Championships and one European Championship, in addition to Regional and National Training Camps

More information about these events on our 'Activity Calendar' or on the list of 2021 events here

 


 

The Facilities at Plas Heli are now open and the bar and cafe will be open from Thursday 12th November subject to the usual restrictions on track and trace distancing and face

In line with the latest initiatives to minimize the spread of Covid 19 we are determined to play our part to minimize the spread of this virus.
