Our 2019 Start of Season Supper will be on Saturday 13th April at The Mulberry, Conwy Marina, starting at 7:30pm. Tickets can be bought at the Mulberry Stores in the marina and also by clicking this link to go to the page on this web site. Tickets are only £17.50 pp for members and their guests. Tickets for children are available for £12. It's a great opportunity to meet fellow berth holders, enjoy good food and company.

The CMBHA 2019 AGM (Annual General Meeting) will start at 10am on Saturday 13th April upstairs at The Mulberry. Refreshments - tea/coffee and bacon butties/croissants will be available from 9:30am. The AGM usually lasts about 30 minutes and then we have an informal discussion afterwards. Formal notice of the AGM appears on this AGM 2019 page, with all the supporting documents. The formal notice will also be emailed to members. You can also nominate members for election to the committee and suggest topics for formal discussion during the AGM.
The list of nominees and the final agenda for the AGM will be emailed to members a few weeks before the AGM. During the informal session after the AGM, there will also be the opportunity to raise any issues without giving notice of your intention to do so.
Living Dangerously - a talk by Sir Ranulph Fiennes on 4th February at Venue Cymru in LLandudno was very popular. The theatre was full and the evening informative and entertaining.

New 40% Discount on Charting Software from Belfield Software - see the advert on the right of the screen. You'll need to log in to see the details and get the 'CMBHA members only' discount code.
The main web camera is back in action - now and again. Please check the date on the image. If you think it's showing an image a few days old try refreshing the cache on your device. Some devices store a local copy of web pages to make you think that they are working faster. You can refresh a page on a PC by pressing Control F5. On a Mac, you assume a yoga position (or press Apple + R). On an iPhone, open a fresh, 'private' Safari page - must be 'private' so the device 'forgets' that you've been there before. You might also like to use the web camera at the west shore beach café to view sea conditions in the bay and towards the Great Orme.
The Conwy River Festival in 2019 will be on two weekends. The Racing and Quay Day will be on the weekend of 20th and 21st July: the La La Rally will be over 26th, 27th and 28th July. You can book online and find more details at http://conwyriverfestival.org/

The annual Rail Ale Festival will again be in Caernarfon in May. We will issue a tentative passage plan at the AGM. Our current idea is to have a beach barbeque in the straits, so you'll have a choice of returning to Conwy or continuing on to the beer festival, or elsewhere.
