13:00 are you sure???

more like 15:00 with a force 4/5 South West to compete with!!!!

With a strong sw I would be looking at a clockwise circumnavigation.

This way you have good shelter on the straits going in to the sw winds, you take it on the port bow for about an hour over the bar and past pilots cove. Then it with you untill the skerries. You then have shelter off the land back to conway and round the north side.

Ged whats your view?

But lets see the forcast last thing tommorrow.

Didn't we have a lovely time the day we went to Bangor, Beaumaris,Benllech,Bull Bay.

etc etc

What a GREAT DAY!!!
My first outing on a RIB cruise meeting up with the "Ribsters"
I would like to thank everyone for making me welcome, especially to Ian for encouraging me to turn up and to Ged, John and the Dave's for their advice and experience on different RIBS.
I hope you all realise how much this is going to cost me !!!!( I guess you do because you have all done it before)

I'll send a copy of all my photos to Ian on CD to compile with the others, and I shall try to post a few on the net.

John
