Sibbing in Wales

Hi all First post so may sound daft.
I am comming down to Wales around the Cardigan Bay area and am wondering if it would be worth it to bring the Sib. What is launching etc like as i have had problems getting launched in Devon before. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hey conner999,

def worth bringing the SIB some beautiful coastline here.....as well as some amazing wildflife (including the Cardigan Bay Bottlenose Dolphs!)

Whereabouts are you heading to? Several on here use Cardigan Bay....We are based near Cardigan, but work throughout the Bay (big area)......in gfact, am working the whole bay this week (Porthmadog, Barmouth, Aberdyfi, Aberystwyth, Cardigan, Newport).......happy to help if we can. Some decent galleries of the wildife and coast on our website if you want a taster

I know the North end of the bay quite well. Let me know if you need help up this way! Definitely bring it. I'd particularly recommend going to St Tudwal's islands where there are caves and seals lie on the rocks.

Just looked properley and have just found out how big Cardigan bay is. Looks like we are at the south end of the bay. But i have to say there is so much to see i cant leave the sib at home.

Well for an update. Put the sib in at Aberporth and went for a run managed to see Dolphins on the first run towards Cardigan. The sib ran like a dream not the kind you wake up screaming. Think i need a bit more power as the suzuki dt 8 was not enough to plane with 2 adults and 2 kids so dropped the wife back on beach and went playing. Pleased i brought it.
