Menai Strait June 5th

Likely be launching just before lunch at Beaumaris and heading towards Conwy for lunch and a pint, (high tide 1 ish) then a run down the Strait through the Swellies to Caernarfon for a late afternoon pint, before a run back through to the Gazelle, mooring up and spending the evening with Mrs Robinson!

We launched from Ty Calch despite Chris's disbelief at 10.30am. I Had 2 novice mates with me so took them on a tour. Castle, plas newydd, bridges, swellies, Beaumaris. I lost count how many times my bow disappeared beneath huge waves, my offshore kit was tested to the limit by the worst conditions on the straits I've seen, we were drenched. A challenging fun day.
