Thanks for this, very good call. Any chance you could speak with coastguard just to let them know what is happening? I think it worth doing.
Welcome. Will be great to see you.
what channel do you fancy then?
For the purpose of this thread and cruise, for those who don't have 2days to read all the posts, most boats will be launching at Ty Calch at Chris's. The evening do too is in Caernarfon.
Departure 11.00-11.30 am on Sat 28th April. Heading anticlockwise round the Island. LW at Caernarfon is 9.50. So going through bridges approaching 1/3 tide. IF YOU DONT KNOW THE ROUTE THROUGH, ENSURE YOU FOLLOW OTHERS IN FILE V CLOSELY. THIS IS CRITICAL IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR PROP!! ANYONE WHO KNOWS THE ROUTE PLEASE HEAD TO THE FRONT. (Rocknrolla/TonyT/Chris Caton/davidgriffiths etc)
I REITERATE ALL BOATS SHOULD BE SELF SUFFICIENT IN ALL ASPECTS OF BOATING AND THE CRUISE. THIS IS JUST A GROUP OF LIKE MINDED PEOPLE GETTING ON THE WATER TOGETHER NOT AN OFFICIAL EVENT.
Notwithstanding the above, as at any other time on the water, I'd expect all who are out on the day to help others in any way they can and keep an eye on eachother.
Boats at Menai Bridge/Porth Daniel or Beaumaris need to be in the water waiting by 11.30-12 or you may miss the pack coming through. I'll be by the Gazelle as any good Cardinal bouy should be, marking the pub
. Others then are joining from Beaumaris and onwards.
As we travel round the Island the tide's coming in, great for re-floating those who like to find sandbanks, and great for anyone who turns back and goes through the bridges alone or with others who don't know the route so well with much more water underneath them.
As we head past Puffin Island if too rough on the NE side we will likely split in to groups of differing speed or all head back, heading back down the Strait and round the SW side of the Island.
Due to the number of boats, other than ensuring all at Ty Calch set off together, we can't warrant waiting for anyone who is late to launch. Once moving, it may be best to head along in groups to watch for eachother. Naturally an 8m boat will go on ahead of a 5m with any type of sea. I hope though we can stay together up to Puffin at least, then make headway and stop offs where we wish. I envisage a bit of a longer stop at holyhead if we get permission to see the tall ships.
