It is 70-80 miles round Anglesey depending on how many bays you enter.

Our old SR5.4 with opti 90 used just under 1L per mile. So if you have a modern two stroke, you would need to take at minimum 80L. Though personally I plan 1.5-2 times my consumption. IMHO, though i'm no guru by any stretch of anyone's imagination, I'd want minimum 100L before setting off. However i like to have plenty left at the end, rather than grind to a halt half way! Then if by Holyhead, you realise you are using way too much per mile. Go and fill up.

Reason being, as soon as you hit waves, consumption rockets. After there, going clockwise, you need to get to Menai again before fueling!

We use 1.25L p/m in our 6.3 with 175 opti and some weight on board. When we went round we took 140L in the tanks and another 50 in drums. Total 190! 2L p/m just in case. I think we used about 90L cruising at about 22mph. It took 3.5hrs.

Of course! everyone welcome on Sat. Just be good to get people together, even those who aren't confident crossing the Atlantic, but also those that are!

Me Humber 6.3 175hp
Mark g shakespeare 6m+ 150hp
Tony T Ribquest 6.5 140hp (underpowered in his ribquest(ionable))
Kerny seapro 5+ 70hp
Neil McCrirrick Humber 5m 90hp
Rib T SR4 50hp
Bam Bam TBC?
Hadd another seapro sport 5+ 70hp
DM/Conway (English spelling) crew All sorts generally over 6m with 100+

(For the Fri or Sun, depending on weather, I'll post nearer the time regarding what appears to be people wanting to circumnavigate the island. Though boat size and weather will restrict some, particularly SIBs or sub 5.5m, but all down to the individual. Be departing Bangor Pier clockwise 3 hr before high tide to follow the tide in from Caernarvon right round the island, 4mph tide is a big help!! No point fighting it)
