Sub training area of Anglesey.

I never knew this..... taken from this link

http://www.visitmyharbour.com/harbou...d/expanded.asp

Caution...A submarine cable, which may best be seen on the chart, extends seaward from a point on the W side of Holy Island, 2.2 miles SE of South Stack.

"Submarines, both surfaced and dived, frequently exercise in the area W of Holy Island".

Talk to any submariner and they'll confirm there's only two types of boats, apparently.

Submarines and targets.

Last year I hit a large wave formation out of nowhere at the start of Loch Fyne

All that I could guess was that it was the wake of a sub with me in its sights

The wake from the nukes coming in and out of the sub base here is absolutely huge. By the time the wave got to you they were long gone thorough. At least around here they only transit on the surface and at a ridiculous speed (25kn+? with escorts).
