Port Meirion - North West Ribsters - 16th October

HI

Anyone fancy the 16th october ?

Meet at my office in Pwllheli and launch at the best slip in North Wales cruise east up the channel towards Porthmadog and then across to Port Meirion Village - http://www.portmeirion-village.com a quick picture stop (we have a very small tidal window).

Porthmadog for Breakfast and the a cruise around cardigan bay stopping off at St Patricks Causway (Sarn Badrig) for a little walk on the low tide?

All welcome, no matter what boat or experience


If anyones intersted in St Paddy Causway-

Sarn Badrig is the most northerly and abrupt of three "reefs" that stretch out into Cardigan Bay. It is probably called Sarn Badrig or St. Patrick's Causeway because it heads out from the coast towards Ireland, running almost parallel to the Llyn Peninsula. The reef is about 11 miles long and runs south west from Mochras/Shell Island. At low tide some of the reef comes out 1.5m above the water.

Sounds good..

I'd like to come, most likely with boat.

I'll also make it a personal crusade to talk Ian into coming. (in which case I may ride with him)

Thanks mate.

Will have to launch at 7am ish to cath the 8ish tide (you can only get to Port Meirion on a very high water.

I can sort boat storage and B&B available at Greenwood Heights.

Sounds great.
If it's a very early start I may not make it with the boat,
but if B J's going, maybe I can pitch in with some fuel and hitch a lift
with Ian??
.... at least I wont have to leave the trailer unattended in a dodgy place

This sounded like a good trip but it's a shame you couldn't organise it as a Saturday event.
