Well, summer’s here. It’s July already. All the activities of recent months (and years for some) have been leading up to this! Plas Heli will be hosting its first sailing championship before the end of the month.

All the builders and contractors have been working full out for weeks to get the building ready to welcome visitors from 37 countries for the European Optimist Championships on July 18th.

The restaurant, cafe and bar which are open to the public and which look out over Glan y Don beach, will open a soon as possible – we have no definite date at present.
