Just a reminder this was the plan for the day. Tony T or Rocky will be in the lead but possibly Richard in his Osprey or even Tim with Black Boss. However my intention is to treat it as a cruise and will keep to the plan as close as possible. Any suggestion for which channel to keep in touch? Channel 8



High Water Belan Pt on 14 May is 05.00 and 17.00
Low Water Belan Pt on 14 May is 11.30

Tides are neaps

The intention is to travel clockwise with the flood tide

Time From/To Heading Distance nm Tide kts Comments

10.00 Ty Calch Bouys 5.0 +0.5 Keep to the channel bouys
10.15 Llanddwyn 313o 13.5 slack
11.15 Penrhyn Mawr 353 o 1.4 slack
11.25 South Stack 32o 1.3 +1.0
11.35 North Stack 36o 7.4 slack Pick up the contingent from Holyhead
12.00 West Mouse 76o 4.5 +1.0
12.20 Middle Mouse 123o 1.8 +0.8
12.30 Porth Wen Stop at the Brickworks for Lunch. This is halfway round and around 35nm
13.15 Porth Wen 97 o 2.2 +0.8
13.25 East Mouse 97 o 1.9 +1.3
13.35 Point Lynas 140 o 2.5 +1.2
13.45 Ynys Dulas 154o 1.8 +1.2
13.55 Ynys Molfre 113o 7.0 +1.7
14.25 Puffin 180o 0.7 +1.1 Passing between Penmon point and Puffin
14.30 Green B1 209o 0.5 +0.8
14.35 Green B2 224o 1.6 +1.3
14.45 Red B8 193o 0.7 +1.3
14.50 Green B5 241o 0.5 +0.6
14.52 Red B12 211o 0.5 +0.6
14.55 Green B7 243o 1.0 +0.6
15.00 Gazelle Stop for a pint. This is 21nm from Porth Wen giving a total of 56nm

It is another 10nm back to Ty Calch through the Straits which can take as little or a long as you like. If you are unfamiliar with the Swellies then follow someone who is more familiar, it is reasonably straightforward.

Recover between 16.00 and 17.00.

I 'thought' I did well last time. When we arrived back at Chris's as they winched us onto the trailer we got told we were the first boat back - although it wasn't a race we had a little smile...

When we got into Chris yard we spotted Rocky just clipping the last strap of his cover down - and he had flushed and washed the boat down already!

Ha! I recall cutting across to Moelfre from puffin and watched all the boats go inshore. We lost sight of most but as we approached Point Lynas just saw Rocky nose round with the Stingher! Those two were on a mission that day in v rough seas.

We then ran alongside you round to Holyhead where we parted company and waited for the others to catch up and had a beer.

There's a good few bigger boats this year.

Though Rocky et al will be left for dead if Guddyup turns up and goes to even half throttle!!!

If this forecast comes in and we keep the light winds is anyone going via The Skerries on the run up? I don't want to mess up the plans - but i'm tempted if its light.
