Well, the deed is done and we've booked cheap accommodation at the premier inn. So, taking into account that I've never towed or launched this boat before, I've got a new tow car and I've never been to that part of the country before, I wonder what could possibly go wrong

Good lad!!! Where you coming from, Essex?

Re routes for towing and importantly places to park/stay/launch PM, TonyT, he's your man for this.

Whatever the weather we'll be out, just might not make round the island, but that's the beauty of the area, stunning, and always one side is manageable. You won't regret it! The Menai strait itself is awesome!!

Seals at Puffin Island, look at that backdrop! Snowdonia. Nearer than Scotland and no midges!

Thanks Chris!! Ive Spoke to our man Fu today, he can do a Banquet for 20 a head.
If thats ok with everyone you can send cheques here to the yard and I'll take them in to him.
He needs to know the numbers as Saturday is a busy night for him and he needs to make sure he leaves enough space. We can use the Bar there before and after the Grub as well.
If thats ok with everyone our address is :
Ty Calch
Llanfaglan
Caernarfon
Gwynedd
LL54 5RA
I'll post a list of who's paid.

Will be great to see the 'Fleet' out again, was an amazing site to see all those Ribs together.
Anyone need any help with accomadation etc just drop me a line, although booking the Premier inn / Travel Lodge will be cheap if booked this far in advance and is in spitting distance of Mr Fu's so no need for a Cab if it gets messy!
