I won't be around tbh but I wouldn't be going if I was. It's an accident waiting to happen IMHO. Jetskis pelting through crowds of boats (some floating, some anchored) at 30knots+. Not very relaxing last year.

Be careful mate. It would be a shame for something to happen to those nice new toobs!

Iíve never managed to get there as always been on holiday or had tiny babies.

Finally got a pass and the weather looks awful, plus many have said itís got too big like you.

I did notice thereís a speed limit in place though on their site.

That's very kind of you Neil, but I fear you're in the minority. The consensus view appears to be that I am indeed "too big".

Re: Moelfre: I felt it was heading that way the last few times we've been. I seem to remember there was a lot of stuff about encouraging people to behave well and they stopped the old practice of everyone chasing the LB round the bay jumping of the wake, but that seemed to make the congestion even worse nearer the shore. At the end of the day it's just impossible to police it.

TBH if the weather's shit that might be the saving of it!

I believe last year a jet ski crashed in to a boat after the event and the helo had to come out. Bloke was badly injured.
