The social programme for the 2024 IRC Welsh National Championships has been designed to allow boats time to travel to the event on Friday morning before racing in the afternoon. Although the main entertainment starts on Friday, anyone arriving earlier can enjoy a selection of food and refreshments on offer at Plas Heli while taking in the spectacular views over the bay from the Sailing Academy balcony.
