I'm debating going clockwise round instead of coming down Menai from Chris's place as there won't be enough water to get back over the bar if we continue round anti-clockwise from Moelfre.

Round the Conwy side sounds good to me, makes it easier for you to spot us and we'll get a chance to see the seals

I don't think we will be able to make it since both parents now in hospital so will be pushed to get everything together for Saturday. Disappointing I am afraid since this date has been in the diary since the beginning of the year. May make it to Moelfre by land to see the lifeboat and perhaps some of you guys on the water.

Does that mean no one is considering going round the island?

Doesn't appear they are.

Don't head off anti clockwise after moelfre on your own. It'll be calm there and a misnomer. You'll head off, then as you come past the north tip you'll start to meet the wind if a SW. You'll hit the stacks and skerries with a SW wind over the falling tide, then struggle to get over the bar, time and or weather wise. Then you'd have a loooong trip back round and likely run out of fuel.

If you want to go around, IMHO go clockwise, head over the bar, run with the wind and flood heading North, past the stacks and overfalls at slack, then round to moelfre. With an easy run home in sheltered water on the NE side and back through the strait you'd be fine..... Providing weather is mild of course.

Stay safe, have fun!

( Remember last time though!!! Against wind over tide in a smallish flighty boat is not fun, even less so without bigger boats flattening the crests 10ft in front of you!)

Indeed, my thoughts exactly, clockwise only option and if not suitable conditions on the west side then will forget the idea and see what Sunday has to offer. Going past stacks on route to Holyhead is only going to be worse so will have to judge by west side once out past the bar. Any doubts it will be abandoned for another day.

Cheers Paul, seems fewer going than expected this year.

Is just go out over bar, run past Llandwyn and if ok, crack on. If not, head back in and down to moelfre with others through strait. Enjoy, I'm at kids birthday party.

Unfortunately no, though parents are down and may be out if fair weather. Give them a wave, they're used to ransoms from Ribnet saying hi these days!
