Skerries - when are we all going?

here you go tony, a new thread. seems to be a lot of interest in the skerries lighthouse, and a lot of people who have never been. i, like 1978searider am a regular there, and 'know the way in', but have never had a good mooch about - ive landed there once but that was only to pass water! for a while now my aim has been to tie up and spend some proper time there, and then back in march a friend of mine started talking about camping there - a bit extreme i thought but sounds like fun. lets wait and see what trinity house have to say then see who may be up for it!

I am on the Straits 1 - 10 June, so could do the 2 June. I still have heard nothing back from the PR Manager at Trinity House, but I assume we are only talking a day trip, rather than a "sleep over"?

From Menai Bridge is the quickest way up to the Skerries up the East coast?
