The Club has two active racing fleets: the Cruiser Class and Conway One Design Class. Each Class is represented on the Sailing Committee.

Conway One Designs

The Conway One Design is an historic yacht designed in the 1920s specifically for the Conwy Estuary. Most of the boats are constructed of wood and are of considerable antiquity, though in recent years two fibreglass Conway O.D.s have been built from a mould owned by the Club. Racing takes place most weekends from April to October, and occasionally midweek on suitable tides. Please see Sailing Programme for details of racing. Copies of the current Sailing Instructions and Course Cards are available from the Club or the Sailing Captain.

Except for advertised open events, yachts must be owned by a member of C.Y.C., N.W.C.C. or M.B.H.A. Members of recognised yacht clubs may helm as guests for a maximum of four races.

Cruiser Racing

Throughout its long history Conway yacht club has had an active cruiser class. Conwy Bay with the prevailing south westerly winds is very sheltered and ideal for both cruising and racing. Racing takes place most weekends and also midweek when the tides are suitable. A variety of courses are available from about 6 to 15 nautical miles and include a mix of estuary / channel sailing and long open sea legs in the bay. With a varied fleet from sports boats to large cruisers.

We are happy for non-members to participate in our races provided they have the appropriate insurance to race.
