Getting there......

Well chaps, it looks like we have a cruise in the making. As well as those mentioned above there's a couple of my pals from Abersoch who will join us in their "bath-tubs". Jono and Amy will I suppose crash the bash in something fast and exotic, so it looks like we're on. Let's pencil Sunday 28th December into our diaries and chat again a little closer to the time. In the meantime, the more the merrier.

Count us in, but we require a ride due to our present situation of NOT HAVING A RIB

ok, this sounds good.

If I drive upto Aber, and then boat across to Pwllheli, I'll only need to replenish fuel once at Pwllheli. By my reckonings (assuming reasonable weather!!), it's approx 30miles across from Aber to Pwllheli, which is probably just on or over an hr of travel time.... this is probably less than what it would be if I drove round
The only thing as you say, Ian, the 30mile crossing could be a bit dodgy if there's been some bad weather, or if there is some bad weather at the time. Although I trust the engine lots, I'd probably end up hugging the coast all the way around at which point I may as well drive anyway.

I'll look into this further at beginning of December

I'll be there, all being well, and will have room on Hawkeye for you Ian at least. (please bring passport for identification!!)

High water looks to be about noon so that should be good.

John

Caprice....

....not forgetting David Manning in (or "on" as some BoatMad authors like to comment about Ribs) Caprice. Will you be joining us David ? I'll be exchanging the Bailys for Champagne as it's the festive season. Somehow, I doubt there will be the need for ice !

Hi folks

Could come down depending on tides/weather as its a long trip from Fleetwood.

How about going to up to Conway instead that way its only a couple of hours for me each way.


Regards Gary
