Anglessy

Has any one had any experiance with a trip round Anglessy?

I have a 5m / 50Hp 4 stroke & plenty of experiance power boating & offshore sailing but not many distance trips on this size boat. Having got the boat in April, now feel confident I can handle it without any problems and fancy a longer trip.

So any tips, spots to look out for, best states of tide to aproach the stacks and the straits.

Cheers

Jono

There are a few places to watch around Anglesey the waters around battleship reef can be very confused. The channel coming into Caernarfon can be shallow at low water and only attempt the bit between the bridges at slack -2 hrs HW Liverpool. all the rest are common sense and looking at the chart. When do you think you will be doing this ?? If I can make it up I would love to join you.

I have been looking for groups in the Northwest/Northwales, Owning a Ribcraft 4.8 / 50 HP i would be interested in such a trip if possible.
Any trips which are open to others would be of interest.

We just took part in an event from N.I. to the Menai Straits in the Bangor Challenger (RB4 etc). The "Irish Sea Challenge" left Carrickfergus, N.I. last Thursday and went via Port St Mary to Bangor Wales, then on to Liverpool, Douglas and Portpatrick, finishing yesterday (Sunday 5th august) back in Bangor, N.I. We in the Challenger left them at Bangor and went through the straits on Friday midday approaching high tide, then on down the Welsh coast to the Bristol Channel and back up to Holyhead, eventually rejoining the fleet in Douglas (via Howth). The run through the straits was most beautiful and "picture-scue". It is wee buns in a rib in these (good) conditions. The port & starboard marks are easily followed as long as you are aware of the change from port-left to port-right just around Dinorwick; yuo should take your Macmillan Almanack with you. I would recommend stopping off at Caernarvon and Beaumaris or Bangor.
