I somehow doubt HRH will be coming. My old man spotted in the paper he and Kate are planning a secret wedding anniversary for April 29th. Somehow doubt they'll pick the cruise as their destination of choice..... Though you never know!!!

Can someone tell me the actual distance around Anglesey, as i am planning my fuel for the trip, onboard tank holds 70ltr plus whatever else i need to carry in jerry cans, my planning will be based on fair weather, on the actual day this may need to be reviewed ?
regards............Shaun..........

Allow for 70-80 miles. (depends if you enter each bay or go headland to headland) Then take 1.5 x what you need to allow for weather eating fuel. When you approach half your fuel, if you're not half way round, head back. That's my rule of thumb.

Have we arranged a stop ? Holyhead seems the obvious choice give people time to top up if they have to carry cans etc
