maybe the site of the black shadow gang took his mind off the bung still, a good flush out does us all good

Fair play to you on that one Paul!.

I'm opening up the caravan this coming weekend, boating season for me starts weekend 24th. Looking forward to the first shakedown.

I will be keeping a close eye on all the Ribs at the Anglesey ribnet raid this season as I intend to buy myself a new bigger rib over the coming year. It Looks like we will have our very own North Wales rib show at Easter.

probably the best boat show of the year, why would anyone want to go to a rib show when you can see them for free and get a trip round Anglesey thrown in to the bargain

Chris, this weekend looks good, no wind on metoffice site, what site do you use to check weather? XC is usually good only for one or two days in advance, I use metoffice and look at forecasts from holyhead, abersoch and conwy to see if much variation.

I cant make it this weekend, I would MUCH rather swap going the match on saturday for a day out on the menai and I am on a VHF course a Pwllheli on sunday

I use metoffice and bbc, and a bit of "hope for the best", and keep looking for the week leading up to the weekends, usually get the trend of which way it's going

we've just swapped a weekends off roading for getting the boat wet for the 1st time this year, engine been serviced so all ready to go

Fantastic day out on the water between Holyhead and Carmel head- lovely picnic on a beach to ourselves.. Saw a couple of ribs at Holyhead that thought may have been you come up this far but it wasn't!!! Let's hope tomorrow is just as stunning- have fun everyone who's out and give us a shout if you are Holyhead way..
