Better late than never

As usual I have to wait until everything else is sorted before I can come out to enjoy myself.
Hopefully Hawkeye will start up and we can zip over to meet you at Menai. Mark will also be launching from Conwy Beacons in Carma 3. I have had a message from Ian ( Black Jack) who lives at Nefyn, he hasn't been around for some time and may join us on the sea today.

The sun came out just after you all went, so hopefully you had a cracking trip back.

Stuart I can't apologise enough. 15 boats were there at 12.45 andby 1.00 no one else had shown up. Wrongly, after a few people said "are we going then?" I agreed. Another boat arrived at 1.08 and caught us up after launching ASAP at Beaumaris, and as a result got his car stuck and had to be pulled out by a tractor.

I'm so sorry, I feel awful for listening to the masses. Please accept my apology? I'll certainly buy you a pint in the Gazelle and I hope you weren't put out too much. Tony T apologises also.

No problem! We did have to wait a beaumaris slip for a bit as a guy was faffing but it wasn't a rib.... We were then still early ish so we pottered down.... No response on channel 77 either!

I didnt want to hang around for too long so decided not to get there too early....

We ended up going to Llandwyn island as i was not sure of the way (other than following the coast) and it would of been a bit boring on our own!

These things happen. Looks like you had a good day...

Sorry Stuart, I'd never intentionally exclude anyone and I feel awful as I'd not have been happy in your position.
