Yes plenty of photos to come plus a video in the making, 173nm miles in total leaving Ty Calch at 9.30 Saturday morning heading over Caernarfon bar up to Holyhead then heading into 22mph headwind from the north all the way to the calf of man. The crossing from Holyhead to the Calf of man is around 45nm with another 15nm to Peel we arrived around 2.45 tired and aching and very pleased to meet Ian (Cypman) who as Kerny says was a fantastic help to us, nothing was to much trouble and we couldn't thank him enough. He certainly made it a lot easier for us with transport, fuel and of course the nearest pub to our campsite

Sunday morning as promised Ian was back at the campsite bright and early ready to transport us and all our gear back to the harbour 1st taking 4 of us down to the marina so we could prepare our ribs and get them back through the flap gates and out on to the breakwater whilst he then went back to collect all our gear and the rest of the crew.

Sunday promised to be a better day with sightly less wind from the north which made the trip back a lot less lumpy than the day before.

We left around around 9.45 heading back to the calf of man and out into the Irish sea heading towards Holyhead. The sea flattened out and the clouds lifted so we decided to change route and head towards Point Lynas round Puffin island and back through the Menai Straights as to complete a near as possible round Anglesey via the Isle of Man. This seemed a good plan at the time but touch and go on Fuel for 1 of the Ribs. It ended up with 3 ribs running out of fuel 1 mile from the slipway which meant the smallest rib Kerny of all people having to nip up to Ty Calch and collect a couple of cans of fuel from Chris so we could complete our Journey at 16.45. What a day.

Before you all start thinking what a load of muppets we carried spare fuel as you would expect on a trip like this but unfortunately things didn't go to plan and the largest rib ran out sooner then expected. It ended up with me handing over my reserve 46lts to Rib number 1, which we thought would do the job, unfortunately half way back through the straights rib number 2 took rib 1 in tow... yea right couple of miles to go and rib number 2 was all out to by this time were nearly home now and rib number 3 offers to tow 1 and 2 the last mile

However Ty Calch in sight rib 3 was all out as well ...Anchors in and its kerny to the rescue...!!! I don't think he will ever let us forget it but we do have a storey to tell about him, including a seagull name Bastard and 1 very messy tent covered in bird and food ...it was so funny you had to be there

All in all a fantastic weekend with a great bunch of people, we had a great laugh and will certainly be going back again to see more.

This picture is the last one of the day
