Not a Baggie fan, was a Villa fan in my teens but since been cars and now boats and cars.

Do you do the full loop round each day or am I being daft?

I've offered to take pics and video of everyone going through the Straits on the round Anglesey trip, maybe catch everyone on the way back to Puffin Island from Conwy as well, then for those that do go all the way round catch them on the way back in over Caernarfon Bar

can do something similar for this cruise
