Some friends and I had an exhilarating day out on North Wales coast Tuesday taking a route from Conwy over to Holyhead...
There was plenty of chop and generally it was dry, although very cold and as the day progressed the seas steadily got rougher … , so much so that we ran out of time to make Holyhead getting as far as Cameas Bay before making a judgement call on time and conditions to turn back ..
There were some big swells and areas of confused seas that made it more challenging but fun though on the return leg heavy following seas certainly concentrated your thoughts ..
Maverick handled superbly and this was the first time I was out in failing light so had to navigate off the GPS – itself quite a buzz in choppy water, although after nearly 6 hours out I am definitely feeling my age today ! The video camera dropped but you can see the benefit of the suspension seats before I righted it .. needless to say as the beers flowed that night we had ‘survived’ a typhoon and ridden 50ft waves !!
