I have work in the way, most of the time, and limited by funds! Love cruising the straights. Next planned outing is this trip! But I can't wait that long!!

need to work to fund the ribs, but need to get out on the salty wet stuff as much as possible, it's been a long two years for us so a nice long relaxing season is on the cards The Straits and surrounding area are a great spot, there's always something to see n do, n you don't need to spend a fortune on fuel to do it either, I can't wait

That's so true! I've cruised the straights for many years, and it always amazes me that it has so much to do! My last trip was my first time pulling into Victoria Dock for some lunch and a beer at that chain pub place over looking the marina.

we only go there when the weather is crap, launching from Caernarfon we are always heading off somewhere else, but not a bad pint though

I normally start at Beaumaris - but it wasn't the best weather and the gazelle was closed. we had big tides, so had a run up the River Seiont (did have a panic that I wouldn't fit back under the bridge) then into Victoria Dock, then the brave nipped out the bottom for a quick blast in the rough stuff Is it wrong to be so excited about getting back out after the winter!

Steve...we also had a jaunt up the river seiont early last season, but came unstuck when we came across a very angry nesting swan. We beat a hasty retreat when the hissing bird came charging across the water towards us.

You and me too, cant wait to get out
