Holyhead Sailing Club is ideally located in Holyhead Harbour with its historic harbour wall, the longest in the UK giving safe access at all states of the tide. The Sailing Club has swinging moorings with a launch service manned daily throughout the season. Holyhead Harbour is ideal for cruising to locations in Ireland, the Isle of Man and Scotland. A lively and social club we hold regular sailing and social events, cruises, racing for dinghies, squibs and yachts
The following is an extract from the minute book of the Porth -y-Felin Sailng club from which this club is descended.
"The object of forming this sailing boat club is first, to draw together the members in a friendly companionship as the opportunity arises, second, to qualify the members of the Club in the management of small sailing craft and third, for a pleasure resort to those who wish to enjoy themsleves in such sport in their leisure hours."
To this end Holyhead Sailing club members have nearly 300 boats ranging from Optimist Dinghies to large bluewater cruisers. There is a thriving Dinghy Racing fleet, a substantial Squib Racing fleet and over 200 cruisers and cruiser/racers many of whom regularily take part in club events.
