Port Dinorwic Sailing Club / Clwb Hwylio Y Felinheli has gained national recognition as “Heart of the Community” club from the RYA and is now in the final for the Club of the Year Awards in 2021.
Many pupils from Ysgol Friars sail at the club and a group of 5 pupils went to Sweden in 2019 for the RS Tera World championships where Jac Bailey (Y8) won the trophy.
Jac was all set to go to South Africa in 2020 to defend his title in April when lockdown came into force.
The club has worked hard in 2020 to engage its membership and support the community during lockdown and then put procedures into place to ensure that sailors could get back on the water as quickly and safely as possible as restrictions eased.
It is the only club in Wales to have reached the final and it would mean a lot to us and the local community if you could take a few minutes to vote.
