Re: Owners

Hi Neil,
Ah, I see, the Holyhead effect. We were there for the first time in 2013, a beautiful marina. We still had our monohull and we used a mooring. In 2020 I was there again, what a sad sight… It was 2 years after Storm Emma but it all looked still very empty.
But as you say, lots of good sailing to be done on the South Coast, and the Channel Islands. Last year we were allowed to come to Jersey, we loved it, lots of very nice anchorages!

Re: Owners

Hi Neil,
I have a Mahe in Pwllheli Marina. We got a few new berth holders when Holyhead Marina was devastated. However pre covid the marina was only 3/4 full. Last year the marina became full due to staycationers buying boats.
The marina is often full as well in the winter months as quite a few boats book into the marina just for the winter especially those that during the summer are on the moorings in Abersoch.
The new marina year runs from April so there may be some vacancies nearer to April. The new contracts have not yet been sent to us.
It may be worth speaking to the manager Will Williams if you are interested as he is very helpful and may have an idea if any hammerhead berths are going to become available.
The main drawback at Pwllheli is that the Mahe is too wide to fit into the travel hoist.
David

Re: Owners

Hi David, I think I saw your boat on the hard a few weeks ago in Pwllheli, if it was yours that I saw I noticed you have a retractable sprit, that looked interesting, we are down in Abersoch quite a lot, it would be nice to meet up. If you're intersted my email is niel.johnson@btinternet.com. I know the guy who had the Lipari that was berthed near you, cheers.
