Just give us a bell on 07917859345 and I'll advise you whereabouts on the beach to launch etc depending on the tide that day.
Regards Chris.

You can't get fairer than that👍

HW Menai--Fri 09.24 Sat 10.10 Sun 10.53
The Range is about 6 metres. You will launch OK at Menai Slipway
Don't be too late recovering as the last 1/3 rd of the slip it is 'Slippey' at the mo
Today's forecast for the Strait for the weekend is SW 16 MPH gusting 30 generally
So don't try Caernarfon Bar
You will be ok to leave your trailer on the trailer park next to the slip. Depending on the actuall wind direction on the day and the atmospheric presssure some water may just flood on to the trailer park so park the car somewhere else just in case!

Tough launch at anything other than high tide without the "Leylandini".

Swellies is not so bad with plenty of water in it
However, you are correct to be cautious
I have an hour or so spare in the Morning if you want a bit of local knowledge etc
Shame if you don't have some fun coming all the way from Sheffield
I have two nephews there and My Sister is moving there. Tried to persuade Her not to
