Video of caernarvon bar in F5 wind over tide.
Just got back from the worst sea I've been in, Humber OP was outstanding.
Meant to travel from Menai to Abersoch today but realised from the off it wasn't going to happen! F5 and wind over tide. Travelled the straits with 6mph of tide in the bridges! Then out to the bar where we could see it was bad. Hoped to get over and then perhaps to morfa nefyn, but it wasn't to be. Suited and booted with goggles we crossed the bar, very good fun but very testing, some very sharp waves a good 12ft from bottom of trough to crest with many breaking. My passenger took 5 mins of video but then then it died from a few large breakers. Gutted. Will recover the card and put in a camera to post.
Awesome day out. Travelled back over the bar then had a beer in caernarvon, port dinorwic, Menai bridge, gazelle and Beaumaris, the Strait pub crawl!
Then on to puffin to see the seals. Used 65 litres of fuel over 50 mile against tide and fighting the bar and outside. Well chuffed.
