Bringing the old 1904 Rhosneigr Lifeboat back from France.
You can now donate via the following page: Click here for the link to the Just Giving Fundraiser
Following a conversation in the cafe at the marina a couple of months ago with Capt. Tudor Roberts and Hywel (ACS)
I understand that there is news on the story of the Rhosneigr Lifeboat from 1904 to 1924, which was highlighted in this article on the Daily Post. The plan to bring the boat back to the UK is gaining momentum. We will post more news when weit becomes available.
If you are interested in this project then do get inctouch.

Race 4 Wednesday Evening Cruiser April 2017
This week we welcomed Houdini and Beck IV back into the racing fleet. Wendy, OOD, set course 3 and re-stated the correct rounding for Lily's benefit. Winds were northerly and very gusty as the yachts started with large holes in the wind appearing on the section between the nuckle and the harbour entrance. Lily got off to a flying start and lead all the way to the entrance with Just Jay just catching her as they headed out towards Bolivar. Houdini following closely behind and, as usual making excellent progress to windward. Lily made a tactical error tacking away to port to try and get a tidal advantage but this backfired and left Just Jay and Houdini pushing Lily to 3rd place as they rounded Bolivar. Madam Wen in 4th and then Just Enough and Beck IV.

7th May 2017 Sunday Cruiser Race
We only had two entries for the race today; Just Jay and Lily. The winds were light and a bit fickle in the harbour but Northerly ranging from 5kt to 12kt. The start was delayed for Nigel getting away from Optimist Sailing and Mark having to get crew member Matt to the mast head to remove the block on the spinnaker halyard. The start time was set for 13:25 and the two yachts got good starts with Just Jay marginally ahead of Lily. Course 4, the same as last Wednesday was chosen with a chance that we might shorten at Clipera if the wind didn't freshen.
It was a beautiful day for sailing with the winds from last week having lessened and as the yachts reached Clipera Just Jay had gained a good lead. Rounding Clipera Lily had a really good spinnaker hoist to dispell all doubts following last Wednesday's race. The leg from Clipera to Penrhos was dead downwind with a bit of tidal effect and Lily managed a deeper line than Just Jay but she still rounded Penrhos well ahead of Lily.

Race 3 - 16th April
Just 2 yachts competing in race 3 as Lily was resting for some maintenance before going to Pwllheli for the first ISORA race on 22nd April. However as Lily is on Mooring A2 she is pretty well perfectly aligned along the start line and Mark as OD gave the two yachts a count down for the start.
Just Enough got a good start close to the wall and managed to keep ahead of Just Jay as they left the harbour. What happened next is anyone's guess but I hear that Just Enough went trawling with her kite and Just Jay had to make way for the ferry.
As the yachts raced back into the harbour Just Enough was a fair way back and on corrected time was some 3 minutes behind.
