sounds like this could be a proper boat show, much better than looking at them on stands and trailers

There is no such thing as a used wine gum, they go in the tube repair kit for a rainy day.

What a nice thought that would be, i would not be so lucky but I may pop round and ask if they are attending, maybe with a cheeking request slipped in the conversation

don't you worry Mr T, you won't see no wine gums being chucked your direction, but there could be the odd Haribo Sour Strawb coming your direction

After the success of the North Wales Easter RIBnet rally 2011, I feel I need something to aim for through these dark nights and something to get our season off to a flyer again.

(Plus Kerny appears to need a thread to distract the bored Hadd, TT, Willk et al from picking on him whilst little U boating, i mean boating takes place)

We had 18 boats from all over the UK last time, (some from as far as Nottingham) travelling from Porth Daniel, Menai Bridge to Morfa Nefyn and back (all in one piece safely I might add). Plus we had a journo on board who got us published in Rib International magazine with over 5 pages of fine pics. Though Nitrox evidently organised the whole thing according the magazine article! ( TT and I are still trying to think how to exact our revenge.)

Anyways, enough of that success, during that time many expressed great interest in circumnavigating Anglesey itself (some actually did that day!) so.... let's get it on and see if we can get over the 18 boat mark this time!!!!

I'm planning on launching Friday 27th for the season, then weather permitting, heading around the island starting from Menai Bridge again. High tide is around 3pm, so we have all day to potter around anti clockwise, then clear the bar at Caernarfon and come through the bridges with plenty of water. It will finish with a meal and plenty of rusty nails in the Gazelle Hotel. (Book early if you want to stay there as the RIBnobbers dive in quick. However there are plenty of hotels in Beaumaris and Menai, a 3 minute taxi ride either side.)

We can stop at Beaumaris and Moelfre if people wish to see the lifeboat, Holyhead marina for fuel if people need (all types,petrol, food, beer.. sorry, water! how irresponsible, though our boat does tend to use more beer per mile than petrol )

More specifics nearer the time though, whatever people want, so get your name down and we can start a roll call list!

(IMHO unless v calm, a 5m+ deep V is about the minimum to go around the island, due to tides and winds in all directions as you go around, weather is very variable. It can be flat calm on one side and then wind over tide with overfalls in places on the other. All are welcome though to tag along for sections they are comfortable with. I'd strongly recommend the tough charts for the area. We seemed to cruise at around 23 knots last time (unless youre in a black osprey ))

THIS IS NOT AN ORGANISED EVENT/CRUISE OR A RACE, IT IS JUST FOR LIKE MINDED PEOPLE TO GET TOGETHER AND SOCIALISE. ALL NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR OWN PLANNING, SAFETY AND PREPARATION.

It seems alot of people on here lack a little confidence. Anglesey is easy,just needs respect. we go around it most weekends.(we never wait for the bar to rise or fall). so get out there and enjoy it. Keep an eye on the fangs and carmel head and you will be o.k.

don't think it's anything to do with confidence, we too have been round on our own, no problems and had a brilliant day out, it's more to do with a load of people having a great day out together, and if that gives a few others the confidence to get out there, so much the better. All we need is the sunshine now

We too have been round. But as Chris says, it's a great social event and much more fun watching others bob along as some bits are boring.

More importantly I do believe there are people here who wouldn't go it alone. It can be confidence, lack of navigational skills, worries of boat size/sea and passengers if it blew up or niggling doubt about boat reliability. All the aforementioned used to apply to me and I wish I'd been on the forum then.

If going together combined with few caring sorts willing to sweep along with smaller boats removes any of the above, I'll be a happy bunny.

Last year we enabled all boats to reach morfa nefyn by going as a group. Had two certain boats been alone, they would have had an unpleasant journey back. their crew/passengers were tired and uncomfortable as it got rougher. However they were reallocated to bigger boats and the skippers had a ball flying off the waves. Safety, fun and pleasure. Result.

I had two boats email me thanking us for doing what we did, they didn't need help but were glad there were boats following behind who could help if fuel filters blocked, engines stalled etc. They enjoyed the day as they felt safer.

This is why I'm coming, going to be my 1st big trip out and It's going to give me more confidence plus being on your own can be a bit boring at times.

You'll be up at the front in a 6m +redbay storm force with twin 90s, whatever the weather!

TBH it's great there's some round island veterans to lead the way. I've only been fully round once myself despite doing the strait dozens of times. North of abberfraw and moelfre Id prefer others to lead us around the areas of overfalls etc.
