I was working from Chris's slip - and a distance of 70 miles each way, and turning it into an overnighter or even a few days based from shell island to explore some new area's.

I have some time off at Easter so weather dependent may try it then.

Ha ha ha. Nope, although he will be 6 months by then....

Would plan on if the weather is perfect him and his mum driving down and camping, if not just a lads trip.

I'm thinking with Pwllhelli, accommodation could be hard if bank holiday and difficult to commit to re weather.

Perhaps the old favourite of Conwy and round Anglesey is best for an organised big group.

Then do the others in smaller groups done off the cuff.

What about Bardsey via the Tycoch as a stop off. Those who want to can stop at the Tycoch rather than carry onto Bardsey or stop off on return. Could be busy if the weather is good and it being a bank holiday. August bank holiday the queues were out the front door for the bar! So might not be such a good idea.

Round Anglesey for Macmillan Cancer Support - April 19th 2014

Though it's a nice stop and you can take a tinny/flask and pack lunch.

Plus high tide is early afternoon ish, ideal to go in there on the way or on the way back.

Plus those that want a run up the strait could do it before or after.

Not a bad plan! I've never been to Bardsey. (Could even stop there for lunch, head to bardsey and then carry on to Pwllheli if nice weather! ;-)

Sounds like a plan.

Paul, I won't be joining you this year, but if anyone just wants a run through the Straits to Puffin Island and then back to Pilots Cove I'm happy to join them for a leisurely day out, if not I'll just give the Searider a blast on me own

I don't see why everyone has to do the same thing. It may suit some to do the run that you suggested Chris at a leisurely pace. The social after has been as much about the event as well as sharing experiences. I have really appreciated your advice Chris!

All suggestions sound great so far, and would be keen for some kind of trip, but probably defo confirmation of date would be a good starting point 👍
