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

What about the 8 knots speed restriction on the 1 mile stretch of the straights around Dinorwic - Y Felinheli. (not that anyone would catch ya) Do you need / have permission from the authorities to fly thro, as Ged and DM did some years back during their round the island record attempt.

as far as I know they will only give permission now if it's early am or late pm, neither of which would suit, maybe Mike aka Telcowilliam could find out from the harbour master as they are good buddies don't think the 8knots will be much of an issue in the scheme of things, maybe chance for a quick coffee and mars bar

It's just for 1 mile so I'm not bothered about going through flat out out, we'll get a better chance to take in the view and maybe stop for a chat if we have time?

Are there signs etc? It would be helpful to have the GPS positions of the speed limit beginning and end. If someone could put up the best route into and out of the area that would be helpful as well!

If you're travelling at an average of 50! Perhaps we're best waiting for you in front of the speed restriction Zone by Port Dinorwic! Might get a better look at you at 8 knots, then race (!) you to the bridges.

There are yellow bouys marking the start and finish of the section of the strait.

Good morning,

The speed limit is marked by yellow buoys either side of the speed limit zone, a possible idea is for one or two of us to wait for you a the start of the zone ?.
