ps Just been watching a really good program on bbc1 History of Bangor, with some great shots around the Menia straits, well worth watching again on their iplayer if missed.

Not sure yet if we can make the pig roast, but will let you know soon, sounds tasty, infact you fella's got me feeling hungry now,

There is a sheltered bay opposite Chris's slip, this is used a lot by overnighters. The slip and rendevous point is in the background.

It is called abermenai point, gives good shelter but water runs fast unless you get right up into the bay, muddy bottom for anchoring, a better place would be to get into Port Dinorwic outer basin maybe

Cheers for the info lads, looks like a nice place to drop for the night, I noticed we've got neap tides for the big event, So I guess not all the banks will be exposed, however i'll certainly be keeping an eye on the sounder and plotter, hoping not to touch down unintentionally of cause,
Can't wait to get up there and discover the Menia,
only drove round the area few years ago by road, be nice to see from a different perspective.

Do you ever get up around Cardigan/Newquay anytime we often have a ride down there for the day from Aberdovey

Not on the water as yet only by road many times, but certainly hoping to cover more ground this year, and it would be great to meet up in Cardigan bay for a blast, we're hoping to try some fishing up there too.
