Had a quick blast this afternoon and went from Chris's up the straits. Hit a sand bank! Pit of a panic but eventually got off. Went through the swellies up to Bangor pier and back down. I can't believe I did that. Just shows you what happens when you are not paying attention - fortunately I was only doing 15 knots.

Off to pilot cove tomorrow with Cookie all being well. Hope to see some of you tomorrow

Cracking day yesterday. Many thanks to Chris Caton for his guidance, and to Chris at Ty Calch for first class service (he's a diamond that fella).

First time through the strait and we couldn't have had much better weather! Fantastic scenery. Anchored at puffin for lunch then back through the Strait and home for tea after a bit of playing in the waves off Ty Calch. Hope everyone else has had as good a weekend!

Haha. Was that you? I felt a right plum stood in the boat watching you and Tom struggling. I think the problem is that the keel rollers aren't rolling any more. That and the trailer needed angling up more. I need to replace the rollers but for that I need to get the boat off the trailer.

'twas nice running through the strait with you and Chris (that was you in the 4.8 Tornado?), this was my ribbing high point so far. Will be back as soon as poss.

When I first messed about in the Straits, I nearly killed/drowned the swmbo and kids!!
Hit all the sandbanks etc etc
Peeps ak me 'how come u know the place so well'?
My reply is
'Cos I,ve hit everythin in it
Innit'

You can't take your eye off the ball in the Strait Mate
Just for interest
Last Friday at LW
We put 2 ribs on Menai Bridge pier before the water left Dinorwic
With a Pro TV Cameraman on board we Filmed the Swellies at low water
This way and that way and around Gorad Goch (the island in the middle) plus pointing out the drying reef that lots don't notice on the Mainland side between Brittania bridge and Plas Newydd
The Plan is to film Caernarfon Bar and the Lavan sands etc at LW too
Make a CD Film thinghie
Showing all the Nav marks etc
Difference between high and low water on Springs
Bilingual as well!!!
