1st and 2nd May 2021

The 29er Event is provisionally booked for a hosted event in the Welsh National Sailing Academy from Saturday, 1st May to Sunday, 2nd May 2021

The 29er is a two-person high performance sailing skiff designed by Julian Bethwaite and first produced in 1998. Derived from the Olympic class 49er class, it is raced in the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships.

The 29er is able to reach high speeds fairly quickly by having a sleek and hydrodynamic hull and will often exceed the wind speed when planing both up and downwind.

Drascombe RallySee the source image
2 July 2021, 08:30 – 7 July 2021,

More information here

Fri 2nd to Sun 4th will be based on the pontoons (SSD) with day sailing along the East coast of the Lleyn Peninsula to Criccieth/Abersoch/Llanbedrog/Pen Y Chain depending on the tide/wind. Mon 5th to Thurs 8th will be liveaboard on a cruise around Tremadog Bay - Porthmadog, Mochras Lagoon, Barmouth are options depending on wind and sea conditions. (Low tide is in the middle of the day)

The Drascombe story starts in the early 1960s with John Watkinson, a former Royal Navy officer, building a boat for himself and his family. John's requirements were for a daysailer, capable of being trailed, stable (to counterract his wife's tendency to seasickness), and safe; but capable of giving an experienced sailor a lively and exciting sail. The boat that John hand-built in a barn on his farm at Drascombe Barton was inspired by the working boats of England's North-East coast, which themselves can trace an ancestry back to the Vikings.

The first Drascombe Lugger was an immediate success and its obvious commercial potential prompted John to initiate production of the boats in GRP. Other models followed, but all following the original philosophy of safety, robustness, and fun.

Plans of Drascombe boats for amateur builders have not been available since the death of John Watkinson, the designer, in 1997.

Here we give a brief specification of various types of Drascombe. This does not claim to be a complete list.

Although most models are or were available in GRP, some types of boat were only ever build in wood.

Also included (where available) are pictures of members' boats (click on the thumbnail to see a larger version), and links to comments on the boats from actual owners. In time, we hope to have one of these for each type of boat.

Saturday 31st July to 6th August 2021

We welcome the Albacore UK National Championship and European Championship to Pwllheli on Saturday 31st July to Friday 6th August 2021

The Albacore is a great first boat for those who are just learning to sail and a very competitive racer for more advanced sailors. It is a fast and lively while being relatively easy to learn to sail and race. A fully adjustable rig and adjustable sail controls allow a crew to depower in high winds - enabling both light and heavy crews to race head to head.

A very versatile boat, it is often sailed by husband/wife and parent child combinations. Those looking for a simple to learn, yet high performance sailing dinghy can join the ranks of Albacore sailors who come from all walks of life and range in age from teenagers to masters pushing 80 years of experience. The Albacore is a boat that is both simple to get into at first, and one which will challenge your tuning and tactical skills for the rest of your life.

The Results will be published on this web site
