Where can we follow you/keep updated?
We'll leave Swansea on the 23rd at about 10 or 10:30 and head for our stop over of Douglas, weather permitting the idea is to pass through the Menai Strait on the way North. The problem with all of this is the conditions on the day, in an ideal perfect world we would average about 50mph, so we should be there at about 13:30 or 14:00, but of course we won't know until the day!

The map is Here and we will be updating the thread on the trip here

I had read somewhere that the Skerries was a Ahh well, I guess for me that's of the list then

if the wardens are there monitoring the breeding birds, maybe not the best place to camp with all them birds about, could get more than you bargained for

I don't think you will get permission to camp if there are breeding birds

not on that occasion - only been ashore once there and that was only for a couple of mins. there is a stone beach at the south end of the lagoon at LW so went ashore there instead of using the steps.
