HP - If you need a list of people who need fuel I am one of them, If I am going round the Island I would like to head off with a full tank.

Really cant wait for this trip now! Counting down the days!

Thanks for all your time putting this together.

Fuel for Conwy

I'd strongly suggest people pre-warn Matthew the harbourmaster if they will be wanting fuel about mid day. It is Easter bank holiday so may be busy, especially at high tide

His number is 01492 596253

Info and maps on Conwy entry http://www.conwy.gov.uk/doc.asp?cat=5342&doc=20669

I'm just going to be full to the brim plus a couple of jerry cans when leaving Beaumaris. 140L in tanks and 50L more in cans.

I have a 150 liter tank, and will be arriving with it full, and then a small poinless spare (5ltr) but if fuel is there I’d rather get some.. I am not 100% sure on my NM per liter as we all know it depends massively on who I am trying to keep up with as to how quickly it will evaporate… This winter I have added NMEA 2000 to the EMM so I should get a better idea of my usage on this trip.

Steve you have more than enough to get round but if you want I can lend you a couple of 20ltr fuel cans to carry as back up, it will save you messing about topping up in Conwy.

Without the run to Conwy -a 6m with 2stroke will use roughly 100L round the island with some waves to get through, rather than flat calm easy running. Most two strokes are about 1.2L per mile broadly in average weather. With the Conwy leg it will be about 100-110 miles so you need 130L. If you take a 20L can or so from Herman with your 150 you'll have plenty even if rough. Too up your tanks from the jerries at Conwy you'll be fine. You're in similar position to me. Conwy could be busy and it's not worth being left as there's a queue. Easter weekend and all that

I could well be wrong here, but I think the harbour master only has diesel, if anyone wants to tip up with petrol there are fuel berths at Conwy & Deganwy marinas which you'll be passing on the way in/out of Conwy
