Hi Paul
I've made the trip for the last 2 years onboard blue thunder and alongside jolly todger
Blue thunder won't be making the trip this year but we will be down with jolly todger
What time do you anticipate being back in the straights towards Caernarfon ?? As we will not be doing the colwyn leg of the trip
I take that you are running back clockwise direction
Thanks
Andy

We are leaving Caernarfon 10.30 heading through strait to Conwy for 12. Leaving Conwy at 1 and going anti-clockwise following tide on the ebb. Hopefully be by pilots cove/Caernarfon bar for circa 5-6.

Be great to see you out.

Reckon we'll be passing the bay at about 1.45-2.15. Though if it's not nice we may cut across the bay so we may not come close in! PM me your mobile and I'll text as we pass puffin if you want. Or I can shout on VHF if you're on that.

we're off to Caernarfon tomorrow afternoon, hopefully get some time to give the Revenger a bit of a spring clean and top the fuel up a touch, forecast looking good for a trial run over to Ty Coch for a pint on Friday, then get it all fuelled up for the big day on Saturday, can't wait if anyone fancies a blast across Caernarfon Bay to Ty Coch let me know
