.........that two of the N.W Ribsters founder members (Jono Gorton and P
D) are only avaliable on the 28th and nothing to do with the fact that the use of Jono's orifice - launching slip and Seamanship skills are greatly required - it looks like Wednesday 28th December is the day. In addition Ian Greenwood AKA - Peninsular RIBS is having a bash on the 29th so he would not be avaliable either, makes the 28th the best day for most.
Initial thoughts then turn toward a cruising course and unless otherwise objected too I suggest, based upon tides and DOG we launch at 09:30 from Jonos place with the objective being Porth Dinllaen on the opposite side of the peninsular.
This course would take us past Abersoch, St Tudwal's Islands into Porth Neigwl, Hell's Mouth (Big Surf), Aberdaron Bay, through Bardsey Sound and around the tip of the Lleyn. On then to our destination where for those in the know we can alight and enjoy refreshments at the Ty Cock pub in the shelter of the bay.
I'd say the round trip would not exceed 60nm however, factoring in stops, weather and WOT blasts one should account for a 100nm day.
Please confirm (that means I'm defo coming P
D and not just saying yes for the sake of it) if you can make it.
