The boat / helicopter demo will kick off between 12:00 - 12:30 ish but this is all subject to weather / tide. To get there in plenty of time I reckon we would have to set off from Ty Calch at 10:00am. Only problem is the low tide (0.8m) is at 10:00am (at menai bridge) and as a novice I have always restricted myself to 3 hours either side of high tide when on the straits. Would we get through at 10:00am (looking for some help from the pros here )
Anybody joining me for a 10:00am launch at Ty Calch or is everybody avoiding me as I have an attraction to sandbanks

We'll be moving off station in similar time to you passing us. You'll be fine in Rib, just pass under centre aiming at white triangle on Wales bank, then once the poles under the bridge align, follow that transient keeping white poles tightly in line, round prices point, go inside the pole/rock equidistant to shore, move out towards the island as you pass the boathouse and remain on the isle half of the strait as you pass the cottage, passing midway under the bridge, veering right afterwards.

never mind all that crap HP, just tell him to read the chart, if he's tooooooo tight to buy one he can download a free chartlet from the Caernarfon Harbour Trust website

he's tried that approach previously, luckily enough it was a sandbank last time, maybe not so lucky in amongst the Swirlies by the way, he's also got previous form with the lumpy bits that afternoon we had an extended coffee break at the Gazelle, if it hadn't been for Rocky there would have been three ribs high n dry

Neil!! Been too long. Be good to catch up. Dad was chuckling watching you head off with your luggage in the rib the other month. Good skills!
