40 boats left Abersoch in a choppy sea and clear blue sky, en route a number decided to turn back as rougher conditions were met at Port Ceiriad and Bardsey Sound or due to mechanical problems.
25 boats made it to Porth Dinllaen from Pwllheli and Abersoch with more meeting up from Conwy, Caernarfon and Anglesey. The bay was calm and the beach and pub very inviting.
2 boats chose to trailer back rather than make the return journey by sea but 23 boats headed back in much calmer seas.

photo's on www.minxpix.co.uk later tonight

Hi Ian and fellow cruise people,
Many thanks for a great first outing, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to the next meeting...... It was great to put faces and names to the boats we see on the water. Great experience, pictures are good to look at, happy memories, see you on the waters soon. John and Kate.

Hello everyone, thanks to Ian for sorting us all out and to Ged for supporting us all as usual.

Here are a few pictures, I'm working on a video but it may take me some time, the patients have a habit of getting in the way!!!

John your right, a big thanks to Ged, yet again, for coming to the aid of 3 boats on the trip. Two tows and a jump start. He is at Ribex next week with a 6.7m orange tubed Air Craft, so if you are there call and say hi to him.

just got back after the bank holiday traffic jams! Not too bad really and well worth it for a bril weekend. Jean and myself really enjoyed it, good company good weather well organised and of course the best B&B in wales. And so lucky to get the weather on saturday before it went downhill on the sunday. Good run to Porthmadog and a really good rough run back on monday in increasing winds. Now the only question is??? when's the next one?

If you had come with us up into Bardsey sound on Monday pm, you'd have been nicking more nuts and bolts out of my box.
