Dear Matthew and team
Over the past 6 months wehave been planning a trip round Anglesey in aid of “Macmillan Cancer Support” organised through a forum on the internet for RIB owners called Ribnet.
See here Round Anglesey for Macmillan Cancer Support - April 19th 2014
We now have over 35 RIBS launching mostly from Caernarfon, that will head through the Menai Strait to Conwy for high tide at mid day. We would be stopping for an hour at most as we aim to have a drink and some fish and chips for lunch before heading on around the Island. Due to the large number of us, and that about 10 of us recently landed last week end and realised they were disturbing normal procedures, I thought it worthwhile to speak with you first as with so many of us we could easily cause further disruption, which is the last thing we want. If you could give me some guidance I can feed this on to those involved. Please let us know where you would prefer us to be for the hour etc. If you can help us and Macmillan I would be very grateful.
Most of the RIBS are just below or just above 6m.
We would like to walk the quay with Macmillan buckets to hopefully collect some funds from the Easter public and will have Macmillan flags etc on some of the boats, so if at least a proportion of us could come alongside to grab their attention that would be brilliant. Macmillan are aware of what we are doing, and it follows up on a round the Isle of White cruise last year where over £8k was raised on the day.
A few boats may want some fuel (nearly all will be petrol), however most will have enough to get around the island anyway.
