If it's flat calm you'd be ahead of schedule anyway and be able to divert to them, then catch up at brickworks for lunch anyway!

Where are you launching/starting from Steve?

HP - Launching at Chris's as Beretta is kept over that way now. Are you going round again or did I see something saying you couldn't make it this time?

I'm about for sure!!

Whether I get ready early and come down to Chris's to come right round is debatable and very weather dependent.

I'm likely setting off anti clockwise about 1ish to crash in to you all near Moelfre, then I'll spin around and run with you back to Chris's, but head out to Pilots cove at 5pm, before heading back to

High tide is 6 ish so I'm happy to stay out later and visit a few "establishments" on my way back through before putting boat away around 7. ;-)

Should be a good run, I want to stay out as much as possible and enjoy it (if we have nice weather) - The rib needs a good run is my excuse!

Just need to be back in time for the evening meal.

You should manage that and with your local knowledge you could always navigate the straits after dark!
