No petrol at Holyhead last time we stopped there, nearest garage is a 15 min walk so unless you get a taxi willing to carry jerry cans make sure you carry enough with you.

Out of curiosity, how much fuel do you estimate having to carry and what's the estimate L/Mile you use with those twin's when cruising at say 20-25 Knots?

I don't remember volunteering for this one, when did that happen
On another note, we used 120litres on the fishing weekend, that included pottering about on the Saturday, waiting for Hadd to keep catching up on the Sunday& playing on the bar back in the strait after the "interesting" trip back. I carry 180l inboard & 2x20l jerry cans, more than enough

I have 140 Suzuki with 140 ltr tank and only used just over half a tank last time we went round, don't worry even if its a bit choppy you should get round easy

hadd, tony t, Pikey dave, and myself will be launching from Chris's at Ty Calch, it works out a lot cheaper and is a better launching and storing ribs option for us.
I noticed that on the last evening venue at the Gazelle that it was a bit awkward for some people to get to the Gazelle, due to most of them having places in on near Caernarfon. So I was wondering would it be a better option to have the evening bash in Caernarfon itself, what do most of you think ?? if the majority want Caernarfon I would be willing to pick anyone up from Menai Anglesey and then you could sort out Taxi's back if this helps.

Please put put down which is best for you.

Many thanks,

Steve.

I will also go with Chris's at Ty Calch, not that I've used it yet but seems likely to be an easier place to all gather and by all acounts Chris offers a very helpful service.
As for the legistics of getting there and staying over, I have not figured that out yet.
Caernarfon seems a good option to me so I'd be fine with that choice.

Interestingly there is an article on a record set for going round Anglesey below which measured 68nm.

Anglesey RIB World Record

It might not be as far as first thought?

That cuts off every bay from headland to headland. Not really much of a scenic cruise doing it that way. I had meant 85 m not nm and guess we'll skirt in towards most bigger bays.

LOL we didn't actually....and found out why you should. Reflected waves meeting to form rising mountains, then vast holes appear as they pull apart that just drop the boat 6ft or more. Unlike a big sea in one direction, you cant see either coming. Quite unnerving. It wasn't even rough that day!

When we came back on the fishing weekend, I remember lashing down all the gear on the boat whilst still in Holyhead & getting a couple of comments about the lengths I was going to from "certain" parties. I then brought us a good mile outside the overfall area as marked on the chart & it was still.. ahem "interesting"
