Will settle up on the night ( or beer my way though mine and donegaldan's share - providing donegaldan does not make his way through €150 of Chowder and wings )

Joking aside - it's a great spot and the food is lovely. It's the lunchtime watering hole for the 2 local sailing schools and yacht clubs. There are plenty of spots to tie up 2 minutes away and walk around to it if an evening run was on the cards too.

details

The plan so far,

I have booked into the Premier Inn Caernarfon on the Friday night, we intend to have a meal at Mr fu’s around 8ish followed by a few pints of Guinness in the pub next door, anyone arriving on the Friday and would like to join us let me know.

Ronnies Caernarfon[slipway] - Boatlaunch

Those that do intend to arrive on the Friday please get in contact with Chris at Ty Calch with your eta so that he will know how many to expect and your time of arrival.

Please make sure all boats are sea worthy and that you carry all the recommended safety equipment. Each and everyone are responsible for their own safety and passage planning. Its up to each skippers decision to go or not. Check that your insurance covers you for this trip.
Last year i think everything ran well with Pikey Dave being lead boat and setting a sensible pace that suited everyone so it makes sense to me if he agrees to do the same again. In the event of fog we will obviously slow down and group closer together, remember this is a cruise not a race, no one gets left behind we all stick together.

Can you please confirm ASAP how many people there are on each rib so that we can inform the coast guard of our numbers?

Signed up so far,

Tony T + 1
Pikey Dave +1
Hadd + 3
Mick + 1
Maximus + 1
Giddy up + 2
Rocknrolla + 5
Ribeyemick + 1
Niel mac + 1
1978 searider + 1


Saturday morning high tide Caernarfon Bar is 9.30 so if everyone can meet at Ty Calch around 9ish with a planned departure time of around 10.am. Last year we made the crossing in around 3 hours 20 mins so if all goes to plan we should arrive at Dun Laoghaire around 1.30.

Dun Laoghaire Marina, Sailing Ireland, Ireland Marina - Welcome

Hopefully this year we will rendezvous with willk, Dan and tony mac at Kish bank. We will use channel 8 as our working channel. I have booked the fleet into the marina they have promised to do their best to try and get us nearer the shore but will let me know nearer the time. Last year i think the charge was €3.60/m for the night

South Dublin Hotels, Dun Laoghaire Hotel, Hotels in Dun Laoghaire, Kingston Hotel Dun Laoghaire

The hotel is the Kingston Hotel Dun Laoghaire, tel; 0035312801810 the rate is €79.00 per night for a standard twin/double room, €59.00 for a standard single room. Anyone wanting a sea view room it will cost €20.00 extra subject to availability, please book before June 10th we have a cancellation policy of 72 hours prior to arrival so let’s hope the weather forecast is looking good for that weekend

Pub, Gastropub & Live Venue - The Purty Kitchen - Monkstown, Dublin, Ireland

Saturday night we have a meal booked at the Purty Kitchen for 8.30pm this gives everyone plenty of time to relax and do their own thing, it might be best if we arrange to meet in the hotel bar around 7 for a few drinks before we depart for the evening meal. This will be 3 courses and include tea/coffee the price for the meal will be €30 per person. I have booked a table for up to 30 people anyone else wishing to join us please let me know ASAP.
.
We have arranged the following set menu that hopefully should appeal to everyone’s tastes


Starters

Seafood Chowder, Homemade Brown Bread
Salmon & Sweet Potato Croquettes, Honey Dijon, Pea Shoots
Deep Fired Calamari, Toamato and Sweet Chilli Dressing, Rocket Leaves
Chicken Wings With Louisiana Sauce, Cuinneog Buttermilk Ranch, carrots

Crackling Pork belly, Creamy Mash, Savoy Cabbage, Red Onion and Cranberry Relish, Apple Cider Jus
Dry Aged Beef Burger With Streaky bacon, Cheddar, Beef Tomato, Iceberg, Ale battered Onion ring and Hand Cut Chips

Desserts

Cinnamon Spiced Apple and Berry Oat Crumble,
White Chocolate and raspberry Cheesecake, Raspberry Sorbet
O Hara’s Stout Chocolate Brownie, Boulaban farm Ice Cream
Sticky Toffee Pudding, caramel sauce, Vanilla Ice Cream
Tea/Coffee


Sunday morning if everyone can be ready to depart the marina by 10.30 we should be back in Caernarfon for around 2pm. Low water at Caernarfon Sunday is at around 16.58 ht 1.16

Some useful information

Please remember its Compulsory to wear lifejackets in Irish waters on vessels <7m

Sounds good Tony. Keep the Liffey Raid in mind. If you're going to do it, might be an idea to look and tides and pick a time so people know it's on. Donegaldan knows the story with required heights and draught, so you might PM him if you want to plan it.

Sounds like a plan i was going to suggest this again if it could be arranged, i know me and mick really enjoyed it last year. I don't think Pikey dave will make it very far with his rib theres not much room under some of those bridges but if the tides okay i would certainly recommend it, just don't fly the Red Ensign

Dan whats the plan

Well done tonyt looks a good plan.
I called into the Marina office on Tuesday. Are you sure they have the booking? She looked up the book and could not see the flotilla booked in. Was quoting me 19 euro a day/night.

Yes its been booked since February heres a copy of the reply they sent me confirming the booking . I will give them a call to make sure


Hi Tony,

"The 6th of July sounds fine with us. I can’t promise unequivocally, but may be able to get you closer to the shore if that would suit this time? I won’t know definitively until closer to the date".

We look forward to welcoming you guys over again.

Kind regards,
Paal

Yep probably best to give them a call. She certainly looked up the book in front of me for that weekend. Unless they have two books .... ??

Yep, Happy to do another cruise up the river.
When is the appetite ? Would suggest after registration in the marina office, same as last year.
If you remember we lost quite a few to the local watering hole

Times and tides wise... yea we were able to get quite far up, getting the tides perfect about two hours after falling tide. Issue being that if we are to go, then really, we will probably have to go regardless of tides, to suit the flotialla time and make it up as far as possible.

Generally, most boats should be ok up to O Connell bridge (city centre)
getting further up, as you can see, the bridges get lower, the channel narrows and gets a little sportier, things need timed much tighter to get minimum clearance, as photos show.

But regardless of tides, I'd suggest a cruise as was done last year.
On a good day, its a nice little run, and total distance from O Connell bridge to DL Marina is only 7NM so not a huge time / gas investment.

We have a new bridge under construction too - it was just a set of piles last year ( but fun with a flow of water behind you and a narrow channel ) but is getting there now.

If I get a chance I will try and eyeball it to see what a passage might be like before the day. Even if it's a blocker the trip even up that far is well worth it.
