Holyhead Sailing Club
Before launching your craft it is vitally important for your own personal safety and the safety of others that you take the time to read carefully the Rules & Regulations as set out by Gwynedd Council. Please adhere to these rules and regulations at all time.
The Sailing Club location is the 2nd of two slipway launch sites in Holyhead, and is situated at the far end of Prince of Wales Road within the new Holyhead Marina complex. Launching from here offers easy access to the whole Western coastline of Anglesey, as well as Holy Island. Noteable features you can explore from here include South Stack Lighthouse, The Skerries & the inland sea (a unique opportunity to travel inland from Holyhead Bay to the peaceful inland waters around Four Mile Bridge).
The slipway here (pic. 1) is of good, wide concrete construction, and suitable for launching at all states of tide.
Access to the slipway is bollard controlled, with the key under the control of Holyhead Sailing Club (premises at the slipway).
Caution! This slipway is also the launch point for The Holyhead RNLI (ILB) Lifeboat. Please ensure you do not block access to the slipway, or the water at any time.
