I do have a 4.7mtr Avon Searider which I have put for sale on Ribnet if anyone is interested they can come and see it over the weekend in my house in Menai Bridge.
Excellent! What size is your osprey? They're nice boats. Rocknrolla, david Griffiths and 1978 are out in them too! A good contingent.

Phil Riley out unfortunately
Please all read this link if attending. RIBnet Forums - Announcements in Forum : Upcoming RIB cruises

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.

Ribnet Channel 8 (please don't all natter too much)
Holyhead Coast Guard channel 84 but usual radio procedures apply.
Holyhead Working Port Channel 14 (Only if needed! this isnt the marina!)

NITROX HAS INFORMED THE COAST GUARD OF OUR INTENDED PLAN AND WILL UPDATE THEM WEATHER DEPENDANT.(Please don't everyone overwhelm them with the same info!) I have also let Beaumaris lifeboat what we are doing, hopefully they will have a training run that day.

Departure 11.00-11.30 am on Sat 28th April from Ty Calch Caernarfon heading anticlockwise.

Please liaise with Kerny/Tony T or Chris for specifics if launching here . In summary, be early, the tide is low at 9.50am but chris is using a tractor. On arrival he will unhitch your boat and line it up on the beach to then enable a speedy launch of everyone. People will return at varied times so will be less stressful.

Heading anticlockwise round the Island. LW at Caernarfon is 9.50. So going through the 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)

We have permission from Holyhead marina (NOT THE WORKING PORT) to go in, but you must raft up. When entering holyhead brackwater please keep the green bouy to starboard and pass by at 12knts only, at the marina and moored yachts keep your speed to 4knts

Boats launching 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. Others then are joining from Beaumaris and onwards.

As we travel round the Island the tide's coming in, good for anyone who turns back and goes through the bridges alone or with others who don't know the route so well as there'll be much more water underneath them.

As we head past Puffin Island, if its 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. I hope though we can stay together up to Puffin at least, then make headway and stop offs where we wish.

It's 80 miles roughly, so if you are not making 20mph or high teens after puffin, consider turning around. Otherwise you will have a very late night!!!!

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, especially after Puffin Island 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 envisage a bit of a longer stop at holyhead as we have permission and it is sheltered for fuel exchange, toilet breaks and to see the tall ships.

Boats coming:
HP,kerny, hadd, Pikey Dave, discomick, IndyR1, nitrox, Neil Mccrirrick, telcowilliam, Rocknrolla, Chris Caton, straitman, yoyo, bradosh, Tiger, Asswakr, Festinghouse, Pow2gran, Andyhendersonuk, 1978searider, Ronin, Silverfox, Ribeyemick, shaunholland, cookie, Jeffhutcheon, chris262112, bilksem .... from Belgium! RMS, Tony T, Europa, ribcraftsteve, Nikal, natalie and "friend", Luke sharples, dragon hawk ficht, next chapter, KND, C-Fury Simon, Alan Priddy?

The thread is getting v busy, to try and ensure some direction, pls use PMs for as much one to one (ooer) action.
