i'll be heading out from bangor pier/gazelle hotel about 9.45 am to head for puffin and see the flotilla head to the horizon for IOM (can't follow sorry). The route out is easy if you follow the bouys, but please, anyone feel free to join me as it is my local haunt up the straits.

If it is a clockwise jaunt round anglesey on sunday, i'll see you at beaumaris pier at 10.30.

Point of warning. Going clockwise round the island, if the tide is lowish to middle, stick to the channel by the spit/headland which is after beaumaris, (ABC boatyard). The reef comes right out towards the bouy and the sandbanks the other side. This is one of the narrowest points of the straits at low water (20m) Yet very wide from coast to coast at high (mile or so).

Anglesey county council operate a register system. You need to send a copy of your insurance and a cheque for £15, http://www.anglesey.gov.uk/doc.asp?cat=2410 you will then receive a registration sticker, if you don’t have the sticker the use of the council slips is not allowed Once you have registered it will then cost you £13 a day to launch.

You could always take a chance as both the Menai Bridge and Beaumaris slips are not always manned in the morning. It is also possible to put the boat in at the Gazelle very carefully, depending on what truck you have. I hope this helps.

On the Sunday I will be launching at Menai Bridge or Beaumaris or Bychan Beach. I will meet up with you guys and the rest off the gang off Puffin Island.

Just to add that the North Wales councils will all accept each other's registration. This means that if you are registered with Denbighshire, Gwynedd or Conwy county councils, you don't need to register with Anglesey, you can just pay the daily launch fee.

Looking forward to the weekend!

I am easily confussed....

Could someone just confrim what registration will be required for the 2 days of activities?
I thought a previous post stated that for this weekend, those involved did not need to register.

Just an observation that others might want to consider, my insurance is for UK coastal waters, which is up to 12miles off-shore. The IOM trip will exceed this, so eamiled my insurer (Porthcawl) with trip details and they have noted it and am covered. Would'nt do any harm to check yours.

insurance?

Good point re insurance, hence im only going round the island on Sunday (Dad put the kaibosh on plans to go outside the insurance with friends! his boat after all) Our insurance only goes 9 mile offshore and can't be extended.

Regards licences for launching etc. Having launched at menai bridge for 20 years, I have never seen anyone from the council asking for money and we have never had a licence????

Elswhere i can't comment.

I'll try to clarify the registration for launching....

Dave Manning and Ged have arranged that folks can launch at Conwy without registering - this is a special arrangement for the event. If you are launching from any other council slipway in County Conwy or Anglesey, you should be registered. However, if you are already registered with one of the N.Wales councils, you won't need to register for another, you just have to pay the daily launch fee. None of this applies to private slipways!

The slip at Menai Bridge is (as far as I know) a council slipway, so officially needs registration. I've not used it personally, so I'm not sure how rigorously it's enforced. Last I heard, it was being managed by Porth Daniel.

This is correct, yes they collect launching fees for the Council but not too rigorously as Porth Daniel's premises are 150m down the road from the slip so they don’t hang around there all day.

They are back and to launching and recovering boats with their tractor. They also own the "new" large car & trailer park opposite the slip....6 quid a day.

IOM Cruise - Insurance

FYI

I have just checked my insurance with my insurer ( Towergate Mardon ) to find I was only covered for 12nm offshore . I have just upgraded this to :

Continental Waters - Brest to River Elbe

which coverers me for British Isles ( including French / German Waters ).

My insurance is due for renewal 13/7/09 and for this cover from now until renewal they have not charged me and are sending me a new cert. to show for this trip. I have been warned if I wanted to keep this on renewal there would be a small increase in premium ( about 5% ) .

Hope this helps.

Adam.

Convoy

Where are we meeting for the run down then? Bothwell Services or further on?
We will be leaving pretty early on Friday and expect to be passing Bothwell around 10:00-10:30.
Just starting to work out times just now so we know when we need to leave, how long it will take etc.
How many are we going to have going south? 3? 4?
Maybe we should keep the handheld VHF's handy for the road down?
