North Wales Best Practice Event – Pwllheli Sailing Academy
The best construction projects are those that add something to the community and that enable people of all ages to discover a new pastime and to boost the local economy.
The development of the Welsh National Sailing Academy & Events Centre at Pwllheli over the past few years is just one such example and the CEW North Wales Club is showcasing the story behind the scheme.
Pwllheli has evolved into one of the finest sailing venues in western Britain. Pwllheli, positioned on the south side of the Llyn Peninsula, is one of the best locations for Olympic class dinghy sailing in Britain. Its site provides a gateway to the sailing waters which include Cardigan Bay, Anglesey and the East Irish Coast. It is regarded as being world class and has hosted a significant number of successful national and international sailing competitions, raising the area’s profile as a sporting and tourist destination and providing business and employment opportunities to the area. Hence the decision to develop a Centre of Excellence for sail training, providing state of the art facilities for sailors at all levels as well as creating economic opportunities for the town and surrounding region.
The Welsh National Sailing Academy & Events Centre was funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) with match funding from Welsh Government and Gwynedd Council. Key criteria were that the Academy Building was iconic and achieve the BREEAM Excellent standard: it has achieved all of this and more.
