Thanks for info on Beaumaris slipway etc. I'll definitely be launching there Sat.a.m. and will of course give you a hand. My mobile no. is on my last posting above. Perhaps you could PM me yours.

Phil

Fuel

If you have diesel engines on this trip you have no problem refuelling in Holyhead. However if you require unleaded they don't have it!
So, I suggest that sufficient is loaded for the total trip + reserve or you take fuel containers which can be emptied into the tanks at Holyhead and the 'Road Support' vehicle can be employed to refill them at a local petrol station.
The total circumnavigation from Conwy to Conwy is ~100nm. Do your own calc's for fuel consumption on your rib.

We have a vehicle available due to Kevin Goulding having a cracked rib (in his chest, not sinking) and he has offered to support the cruise on the road.

Sorry, I've been away for as while!!

What are the final details? I live on the Island, and can launch almost anywhere. Would love to join in.

Richard (Windchill), I've just PM'd with some detail and phone numbers.
My last night online so future contact will have to be by mobile, which you should all have by now, or I'll phone through and ask someone to post to the thread.

Last minute confirmations give us 7 ribs and 20 people. If you know you will have spare seats, especially on Saturday please post here tonight.

Forgot to add that if you are launching at Conwy bring your boat insurance documents with you as they may be asked for when launching.

Dave Griffiths, can you give me a call as I can't find you on RIBnet to PM you. Thanks

Fuel

Is everybody OK for fuel? With enough forewarning, we could probably arrange a shuttle service for those requiring it.

Rhosneigr has the nearest pumps to the beach, but his fuel is expensive I think.

Also, could arrange lunch at Holyhead Sailing Club if anyone interested.

Lunch

You are all welcome to use the club's facilities as guests; however, Stan will not be able to offer a full meal service as he will be busy preparing for the summer ball on Saturday evening. He has apologised profusely, and offered to make us samdwiches and do chips if that suits. The bar, of course, will be in full flow!!

Have spoken to Ian about this already. All we need to do is confirm numbers/time on Saturday.

Aim to reach Holyhead @13:00, allows a one hour stop over for food & fuel.
Now 10 ribs listed, weather is looking good with calm conditions forecast. If this is the case it will be an anti-clockwise route but final decision will be made Friday night/Saturday AM.
