They ran from Beaumaris to the bar and back. With force 7 wind over a 7knot tide they did really well!
With a gale warning ENE the flotilla went up to Beaumaris from Caernarvon to meet those that launched there, then we ran right back through the strait and naturally split in to groups. 3 big ribs went to Holyhead and back. About 10 in two groups made it to the SW side of Holyhead, by Treaddur bay, then turned back in to the wind due to weather picking up. A long slog back for smaller boats, with a lot of air and bows lifting. Better safe than sorry.
Many who got out over the bar went to Llandwyn island, pilots cove for some lunch. Then headed back in.
A fantastic day, no breakdowns, no accidents and many out in seas they would never have bothered/dared to alone.
