North Wales Cruising Club


 

The North Wales Cruising Club was founded in 1928 for yachtsmen who enjoyed the pleasures of cruising, as opposed to racing, and is one of the most active Clubs in the North Wales region. Our fleet consists of around 130 vessels, from small to large, and includes both yachts and motor cruisers. Cruises are arranged on a regular basis, including weekend trips to the Menai Straits and around Anglesey, and longer ones which take advantage of the extensive cruising area to the Isle of Man, Ireland and the west coast of Scotland.

We welcome visitors to our premises, conveniently located near the town quay, inside the Conwy Town walls and just behind the "Liverpool Arms" public house.

The Club premises are open to members from 09:00-23:00 (7 days per week for access to showers etc.) and to visitors during bar opening hours (see below). The code for the front door is available to members only.

The ground floor has a comfortable lounge bar, gents toilets with shower and also a washing machine and tumble drier. On the first floor there is the chart room, with television and video player, and a pleasant ladies powder room with a shower and power for hairdryers etc.

Children under 14 years of age are welcome at all times but are requested to use the chart room after 20:00. Dogs are also welcome before 18:00 but only if on a lead.

Conwy harbour offers good shelter from all directions except in strong winds from North to North West when there can be some swell in the river. The Marina is located at the river entrance and there are numerous swinging moorings available - some available for Visitors via the Harbour Office.

Despite rumours, it is not that difficult to enter - just follow the buoyed channel from the Fairway buoy.

 

 

Water is available on the town quay and the floating pontoon on the quay wall which is accessible approximately 2 hours either side of high tide, general provisions are available in the town. A large superstore (Tesco) is located a few minutes walk away.

Marine diesel, bottled gas and chandlery are available at either marinas - call on VHF channel 80 before entering. Diesel is also available from the floating fuel pontoon on the quay wall (hw + or - 2)

The town quay has a scrubbing berth which may be used by arrangement with the Harbourmaster.

There are good rail and coach links to Liverpool and the Northwest, the Midlands and Holyhead from nearby Llandudno Junction.

Conwy has Barclays and HSBC branches with external cash dispensers.

Further details about the harbour can be obtained from the harbours own Website on the Conwy Council Website.
