Hi Paul
I've made the trip for the last 2 years onboard blue thunder and alongside jolly todger
Blue thunder won't be making the trip this year but we will be down with jolly todger
What time do you anticipate being back in the straights towards Caernarfon ?? As we will not be doing the colwyn leg of the trip
I take that you are running back clockwise direction
Thanks
Andy

We are leaving Caernarfon 10.30 heading through strait to Conwy for 12. Leaving Conwy at 1 and going anti-clockwise following tide on the ebb. Hopefully be by pilots cove/Caernarfon bar for circa 5-6.

Be great to see you out.
