Join us as we explore some of North Wales' hidden gems. We will be walking some of the most beautiful trails in the country and reporting on news, events and activities; both weird and wonderful. We will be trying and testing activities you might not have known North Wales has to offer, some within our comfort zone and others which are very far out!

Sailing Centre takes shape.
Something spectacular is taking shape near the harbour in Pwllheli. By Lleyn standards, the 8.3 million pound investment is enormous and will increase the opportunities for the outdoor sector in Gwynedd and boost the local economy. Controversial and much delayed though it is, it will soon provide for national and even international sailing events and establish the area as a destination for world class sailors. It is also planned to be a key building in which to hold wider community events and activities. We are hoping that some of these visitors find their way down to Aberdaron and want to stay in Manaros or Glandwr.
The video above was taken late last year, but Peter visited the site yesterday and took these photos of the current build which has progressed a long way.
This development is distinct from the harbour, which is full of power boats and is served by the Pwllheli Sailing Club building which remains. This new building faces east and looks towards Pen-ychain and Hafan y Mor (Butlins if you are of a certain age).
