Round Anglesey for Macmillan Cancer Support - April 19th 2014

Well done Tim and Linda! That's great work fundraising. Between just you me and Chris TyCalch we have raised over 1,000!!!!

Remember to add the gift aid when you put it through just giving! If you can't, I can easily do it for you if you transfer the money.

Great work.


That's the third person to say it was 82nm. Which is 95m. I'd have anticipated > 100 but the gps don't lie!

Our fuel consumption is poor with dragging tubes. 1.35L p/m

we maybe hugged the coast a little more in places - we certainly went into moelfre which many others didnt, but we covered 86nm, and as for fuel, well i was really really impressed - force 120 2stroke - only used 85 litres! i was loaded up with around 180litres expecting to use loads but returned with a near full main tank, and full reserve tank, having only used what i was carrying as extra!

Back home :(

Back home after a great weekend. Thanks to all those involved for a great time. Nice to meet so many nice folk.

Great shake down, with Chris, Jeff, Gareth, Simon et al on Friday in some fantastic weather. Special mention to Chris Ty Calch for saving our weekend (again) with the loan of a battery.

Managed to make it round this year and used way less fuel than we feared. Interesting times from Point Lynas down to Carmel Head but CC gave a good account of herself and it never felt too hairy. It would have been a different story going into the wind mind.

Hope my knees and back recover in time for Oban in a fortnight!

Good to meet you too fella - even more suprising to run into you at the VOSA checkpoint this morning on the bypass!

The exact words from the copper to me were: '...we're aware that some of the pwhelli boys have disabled their trailer brakes so we're having an hour or two this morning checking everyone'.

Quick two minute check and on our way. The traaffic wasn't too bad thereafter, for a Bank Holiday Monday.

See you again soon, I'm sure.

I was kinda pleased all the work i did over the winter passed muster. I'm sure all our fellow ribnetters were beyond reproach too!

BTW, did you really use 55 litres getting to Conwy?

Well, after reflecting on it, I think I underestimated how much fuel we used on Friday so the tank I believed to be full and which we needed to switch in the river at Conwy, was in fact no-where near full.

I arrived on Friday morning with 2 x 55 litre tanks brim full and 2 x 22 litre jerry cans.

We went to Porth Dinlaen on Friday which is roughly a 27 mile round trip, or thereabouts, so I estimated approx 30 litres used, leaving 25 litres in the tank into which I emptied one jerry can on Saturday morning. Total in that tank therefore (say) 47 litres when we left Caernarfon. This tank was empty by the time you stood by and covered us in the river at Conwy as we switched tanks.

I think even a badly tuned 90 2 stroke would struggle to use that much fuel on a 27 mile trip, surely.

But whatever, it would have been impossible to get round the island safely with the remaining 55 litre full tank and remaining 22 litre jerry can!

All I can think is that the trip on Friday was actually a fair bit further (we did come back hugging the coastline for a good bit of the trip, although not 'gunning' it, as you know) but we did a triangular route rather than a 'there and back'.

In summary, several lessons for me:

1) Make a note of exact distance travelled (from the GPS) on every trip.

2) Use EVERY opportunity to fill tanks (I could have emptied one jerry can into the tank on Friday night, refilled it and taken it with me, rather than just emptying one of the cans into the tank on Saturday morning)

3) Dip the tank to check how full it actually is rather than use an uneducated guess!

Disappointing not to make it round but listening to reports of conditions between Point Lynas and Carmel Head, maybe Lynn would have been battering my barnet from the back seat anyway!
