Hi Dan .... I'm fortunate to know Newport Pembs very well ..... My parents live there and I've been going there all my life on hols ...i've got a mooring just upstream from the boat club where i'll put her next week ...... I shall be launching on Monday with luck and heading out for a blast .... its gonna be windy apparantly but the forecast is for an offshore southerly (north easterlies are a nightmare) so I should be ok for some fun .....As you say the coastline is wonderful although over the years we havent ventured too far from newport ...... the farthest north being Cardigan Island and the furthest south being Porthgain ..... however now i've got the new boat with some all singing and dancing GPS ; so i fancy spreading the wings a bit more.... I havent seen your boat in Newport . where do you usually operate from ?
I have just looked through your gallery of pics and notice newport in the background ..... you are clearly making your way downstream from Parrog

We mainly launch out of Parrog for the Environment Agency water sampling....a couple of sites in the estuary itself and a couple out at sea. We also sometimes go from there for diving the Gramsbergen just around Dinas Island....there's also a great reef off Cwm yr Eglwys.....

We will be doing some Cetacean monitoring for Sea-Trust this year, and had hoped to run soem of the time from the Parrog....it's a problem getting people on and off safely /without getting wet unfortunately. However, I understand that the moorings commitee is hoping to get a pontoon installed this year, which would be great!

What colour is the RIB? We've got some dive charters over Easter and will be around your way at some point (weather permitting!)....Alternatively, we will be out on excercise from Poppit with the Lifeboat Sunday am....will keep an eye open for you!

Dan

Succesful day all round by the sound of it.....misspent a fair chunk of my youth in the Golden.....

There are some big sets coming through Cardigan bar at the moment....we couldn't get out if we wanted to....We've just had a shout for a surfer off Poppit, didn't make it, but got to clean the boats afterwards ...so I'm now off to the pub too!
