Travelodge booked for the Saturday and looks like Fu's could be the target for the Saturday evening meal so that's me +1 if any pre-booking needs doing.
Looking forward to a great day.
good to hear you and Andrew? are coming over again, hopefully it will be another great day out
from recent experience Fu's is very busy over the weekends, I guess will get even busier during the school holidays, so I think pre booking would be a good idea, we went last weekend and food was great, still stuffed from the banquet

Also as I have never done the menai straights before I was wondering if anybody was planning to be going through the straights from Chris's on the 27th or 28th of this month weather permitting as I would like to follow somebody through so I can get the passages / local knowledge?
P.S. I can't go out this weekend
as the tubes need repairing by an expert and not a novice like myself!
approx return distance from Ty Calch to Moelfre and back to Ty Calch is 50nm.
not sure about 27th / 28th yet, but as Jeff has mentioned, don't worry too much about going through the Straits as we will be together, we can always pull up just before the bridges and describe the options. don't worry too much about the Straits, there is plenty of opertunity to enjoy some great water, and its different every time you go depending on tides and weather, great spot
good luck with the tubes, let us know how you get on with them

ah, red leader, we're in a convoy
I guess the sand bank magnet will be well deployed if you leading us all through then
have you packed your smooooooooothest file for prop repairs when we get to Moelfre
n don't forget, it's a 150 ermintrude, not a yammie 2 smoke, jus watch that fuel gettin guzzled
