Hi Greg you've got a nice selection of videos uploaded. Very enjoyable and informative. Will be making a visit to Anglesey in 2022 I think, hope conditions are right for a circumnavigation.

It's 75 to 85 miles depending on how closely you follow the contour. He said it took four hours, so averaged approx 17 kn.

Ye as the above says its about 85miles, we cruised about 30-35knotts then stopped off at different points taking in the scenery which is stunning. at that took about 4hrs, it was perfect conditions too, we rarely get calm all the way round ha.

Loved the video Greg - although I prefer to stop and spend time admiring the scenery rather than whizzing past it!

Some gorgeous coves around the island worth seeing :-)

There are some stunning spots to stop, brickworks, lighthouses, The Scerries the list goes on.

Menai Slip, great slipway but parking can be tricky as the carpark can get swamped at high tide.

The best place to launch is at Chris's at Ty Calch in Caernarfon. Chris will launch you for around £20 but give him a call before you go. He will be shut now until the clocks change next year.

There are some magical places around Anglesey and it is different every time you go round. There is no fuel except at Menai which is tidal so best have enough fuel to get around the island.

The wild life is also fantastic. Last time I went round we saw 4 pods of dolphins. In early spring you get the nesting ​birds including puffins. There are always seals at Puffin island.

The water is always interesting with over falls and the Straits to navigate. Caernarfon bar can also be a challenge.

My favourite place is Pilot Cove on a warm sunny day looking back toward Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula. Just brilliant!

Pilots Cove is Stunning and yes it important to take plenty of fuel. Caernarfon bar, well lets say that can be fun for some piloting, get your wings on ha
