What thoughts do you have, go Moelfre and back the same way or is there an alternative with it being shallow across the bar?
Do any of you know it well enough to manage it after 3 hours after HW?

I'm now wondering if best option is to just have Saturday as the Moelfre day and look to the Sunday for circumnavigating Anglesey.
If that is a choice would anyone else be going?

We are up for that provided my new boat has a successful maiden voyage to Moelfre, (just about to set off to pick up). The weather looks better for Sunday as well

I am relying on others who know the area but Sunday does look a better day and HW is later so gives a bigger window.

That is a much better option.
Tide times for Sunday along the Strait
HW
Caernarfon Bar 11.00
Fort Belan 11.36
Caernarfon 11.43
Dinorwic 11.56
Menai Bridge 12.40
Beaumaris 12.36
Although the weather reports are all over the place as usual!
Most concur that on Sunday the winds will be less
Ref rain/mist /vis?
Buggered if I know
If its your first time round
I would go clockwise leaving the Strait at about 10.00 or sooner
Last of the flood, pretty slack then
By the time you get around the top of the Island and towards Point Lynas you will have got past all the overfalls before the worst of the ebb.
Which you don't want to be in on Spring tides!
The North of the Island should be sheltered anyway if the wind stays in the south as predicted.
The Swellies is no problem with a RIB at anytime
The sticky up bits are always in the same place
The prob with Caernarfon bar if there is a swell
You might have 3 metres under you on the crest of a wave and .3 in the trough!!!!
Planning to leave Dinorwic about 09.30 Sunday, going over the Bar towards Porth Dinllaen
Might see you around?

If you are around on Saturday we should meet and see what plans are for Sunday. If we don't look to go around then Porth Dinllaen looks a good trip and may join you.

Add me to the list of attendees! Will be launching at Conwy and coming across to meet up with you all at Puffin. Which side of Puffin are you going?
