APRIL 2020

 I hope that you, our valued customers, are keeping safe as we face what is, without doubt, a global crisis that is unprecedented in modern times.

In order to follow the continuing directives laid out by the Government and the British Marine Federation we will be extending the restrictions at Port Penrhyn up to May 8th  which will include the following:-

  • We have banned all general public access to the Port.

  • There is access for boat owners, both afloat and ashore, but we ask you to take into consideration the Government’s directives relating to essential journeys and their request for people to stay at home. (Access Gate Code is the same)

  • We can now offer Lift and Launches for those who want, under strict social distancing arrangements to be followed to the letter. However, for those wishing to launch we again ask you to consider the following :-

    • The restrictions to essential travel as outlined by the Government

    • The RNLI, RYA & Coastguard guidance not to undertake any non-essential leisure boating activity

    • Also, please note the following berthing locations in North Wales  are currently closed or operating under restrictive practices:-

      • Holyhead Sailing Club

      • Port Dinorwic Marina

      • Victoria Dock Caernarfon

      • Conwy Marina and more

In order to protect our people and help limit the deadly spread of the COVID-19 virus and following the Governments 3 week extension of the lockdown last week,  we ask you all to follow the guidance issued. The health and welfare of our customers, work colleagues are fundamental factors in all our decision-making and your protection remains our highest priority.

As this is a rapidly changing situation, we don’t know for how long the restrictions at Port Penrhyn and to the wider marine facilities in North Wales will be effected. However, we will continue to follow the advice of our Government as well as British Marine Federation and Public Health Wales.

Please keep visiting our website and social media platforms for any updates on the situation.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves, your loved ones, your colleagues and your communities, and we look forward to seeing you all when the time is right.

Thank you for your understanding.
