Anyways, some members have jumped on the idea of a cruise for all based in N.Wales as there appear to be a few of us that boat in the area from around the country. With such spectacular scenery right on the end of a good road network, it would be criminal not to try and organise something. The conwy cruise to IOM early this year was popular, but got blown out, though even then, many appeared.

Target market for Main day of 23rd. Everyone. Sibs, large ribs, small ribs, all nationalities, even french, just. More a day to get everyone together and see loads of boats. (Day before or after, Ribs able to cruise at 20mph ish in a chop, may want to go round the island or to Abersoch and back, but V weather dependant.)

Location: Anglesey, Menai Straits, Specifically starting by Menai Bridge/Beaumaris. End of the A55 for ease of access.

Destination. If Calm Morfa Nefyn, Ty Coch pub, google it is enough. Pass through the two famous bridges, Menai Suspension Bridge (largest suspension bridge in Uk i think) and Brittania bridge, one of Britains most famous stretches of water. Heading past Snowdon on the left, Stately home Plas Newydd on the right, past Caernarfon Castle and the sand dunes of Abermenai, all in a 10 mile stretch. Then over the bar and on to morfa nefyn, Ty Coch pub for either beer/bbq or beer/food. If rough we can either head NE to avoid South or Westerly winds, to Puffin Island to see seals with a stop at high tide on return at Beaumaris for fish and chips, pier and beach available to raft up, then Gazelle for beer/pub lunch, jetty and runners available. Or if Northerly and Easterly winds, we can head SW, heading on the same route but stop short at caernarvon for pub lunch, or to Abermenai for bbq. Caernarvon has jetty/marina to tie up to, or if really bad port dinorwic, marina and pub also.

Date 23rd of April. (25th is Bank Holiday, as is the following early 2nd May Bank Holiday.) High tide Menai Bridge around 3.15pm. The following week end low water is mid day. It's early in the season but heh, got to start somewhere and the weather early this year was the best.

Launch: Primarily Porth Daniel at council slip and Beaumaris at their slip, though more tidal limited, both of whom I will contact to see what they can do for us both boat storage and launch wise. Some larger boats may go for conwy, but it is v tidal dependant and a fair way away. There are also other places which will be mentioned within 5 miles, caernarvon and opposite for example. Also, for sub 5m and sibs, Gazelle Hotel is great and again i could speak to landlady also. That's where I'll be. Beaumaris too has a slip by the RNLI shed, but is tidal limited, great place with space, ideal for SIBs??

Fuel: Diesel on site at both. Petrol on site at Beaumaris and nearby garage at Porth Daniel.

Accomodation: is everywhere in both Menai and Beaumaris, plus campsites and other hotels nearby on Anglesey and mainland.

Here's hoping
Hi paul, how much fuel would you need to get round with 70hp evinrude 5.2 rib cheers

It is 70-80 miles round Anglesey depending on how many bays you enter.

Our old SR5.4 with opti 90 used just under 1L per mile. So if you have a modern two stroke, you would need to take at minimum 80L. Though personally I plan 1.5-2 times my consumption. IMHO, though i'm no guru by any stretch of anyone's imagination, I'd want minimum 100L before setting off. However i like to have plenty left at the end, rather than grind to a halt half way! Then if by Holyhead, you realise you are using way too much per mile. Go and fill up.

Reason being, as soon as you hit waves, consumption rockets. After there, going clockwise, you need to get to Menai again before fueling!

We use 1.25L p/m in our 6.3 with 175 opti and some weight on board. When we went round we took 140L in the tanks and another 50 in drums. Total 190! 2L p/m just in case. I think we used about 90L cruising at about 22mph. It took 3.5hrs.

Of course! everyone welcome on Sat. Just be good to get people together, even those who aren't confident crossing the Atlantic, but also those that are!

Me Humber 6.3 175hp
Mark g shakespeare 6m+ 150hp
Tony T Ribquest 6.5 140hp (underpowered in his ribquest(ionable))
Kerny seapro 5+ 70hp
Neil McCrirrick Humber 5m 90hp
Rib T SR4 50hp
Bam Bam TBC?
Hadd another seapro sport 5+ 70hp
DM/Conway (English spelling) crew All sorts generally over 6m with 100+

(For the Fri or Sun, depending on weather, I'll post nearer the time regarding what appears to be people wanting to circumnavigate the island. Though boat size and weather will restrict some, particularly SIBs or sub 5.5m, but all down to the individual. Be departing Bangor Pier clockwise 3 hr before high tide to follow the tide in from Caernarvon right round the island, 4mph tide is a big help!! No point fighting it)
