Penmaenmawr Sailing Club

Great sailing in North Wales since 1962

Puffin Marathon Results


The Annual Race got off to a flying start on a day enjoyed by all, as the conditions were ideal & the entrants had some great sailing with bacon butties & cottage pie afterwards. Some of the ultra keen Pico sailors wanted to go, but I said no as it was a bit too lumpy and a little too far for pico’s with youngsters onboard (so maybe next year kids!). The 4 pico’s had a good sail about inshore and came back smiling – so a good day all in all.
Many thanks to the support team on the day. – Bernard.
