Another two possibles

Hello all,

Weather permitting, two ribs from Sandy Beach, Holyhead Bay will be joining the cruise but we will be setting off early a.m. and sailing around to the start and bailing out back at Holyhead to complete our circuit.

Just hope we can get off the beach early doors. Onshore Force 4 currently forecast.

Hope to meet up with you on Saturday.

Got my trailer sorted at the weekend so looks like I may be able to make this after all. Working Friday though so i'll be coming down Friday night after work. Probably stopping in the Bangor Travelodge and then hoping to launch at Porth Daniel in at 9 am in time to meet the Beaumaris contingent coming through the strait at 9:30.

Will have the burds in tow (the missus and 12 y.o. daughter) and being noobs we prolly won't make it all the way round if it's anything but flat calm but will bring enough fuel that we can do it if necessary. Will have to head back on Saturday night too unfortunately so won't be at the piss-up (will have spent me beer money on petrol anyway!)

Can anyone see any flaws in this plan?
