2x70L and 2x25L.

In bad weather any 5m+ rib can get to 2L per mile and it's 80m around the island.

Weather not so perfect but heh, it could be worse .

Rather take the rain anyday over wind, might get wet but at least we'll get round, however nice the day not all of us will make it if the wind blows up.

Fingers crossed otherwise it will be a 180 at Puffin Island for us small fish

If the wind does pick up depending where its blowing from i,m sure we can still make a day of it, there is always Conway and round the Great Orme if not Anglesey either way i wont be back till the pigs nearly cooked

If the wind is a strong North Easterly maybe going out over the Caernarfon bar and playing round that side of the Island is a better option.
