Update - 4 weeks to go and counting!

First run of the season yesterday and what a great day for it. Tom launched us at Chris's and what followed was a lovely day with 75nM in 5 hrs running round Anglesey, stopping off at Puffin, Porth Wen, Skerries and Holyhead and finally meeting up with Dan and Emma before being recovered by Tom.

After putting Just Looking away, I met up with Brian Roberts the social secretary at the RWYC and all is set for the Saturday Evening. The buffet type meal will be chilli and rice with salad followed by a sweet. There will be both a meat and vegi option - I just need to know the numbers for the vegi option. The cost for the meal is 10 which I think is quite good. (Two of us went to Fu's Friday and it was 45 - very nice though!) Tea and coffee will be available but of course there is a bar including a real ale pump.

I need to have all monies in for the meal by Saturday 27th April. If you would like to PM me with how you would like to pay either by cheque or by bank transfer then I will send you my address or bank details.

Just hoping for the weather I has yesterday and looking forward to meeting you all!

Nick

So, almost time for the season to start and launch the Cardinal bouy for the Gazelle.

It's a first for me for the run from Morgan Nefyn/Ty Coch on to Bardsey. I'm guessing 85 mile round trip. So 2x 70L internal and 2x 25L drums should cover the rough weather we are bound to have!

If anyone wants escorting through the swellies and the Strait down to Chris's at Caernarfon, fee free to follow me in the morning over the rocks. ;-)

Two Weeks to Go!

With just under two weeks to go we have around 28 ribs planning to do the run with 20+ for the evening meal and not many spaces left if you wish to eat on the Saturday evening.

Following the meal Alan Savage from Team Britannia has offered to provide an insight into the forthcoming powerboat world record attempt at being the fastest powerboat around the world. Alan will be a crew member on the boat being built by Alan Priddy.

Alan is bringing his family down from Scotland for the weekend but as it is his wedding anniversary on Saturday he is not bringing his rib. If anyone has a spare seat then he would really appreciate the opportunity to see the Llyn Penisula from the sea

The evening meal will be 7.00 for 7.30 pm with Alan giving a presentation from 8.45 pm. Even if you choose to eat elsewhere you will be more than welcome to join us for Alan's talk and take the opportunity to socialise with each other. Hopefully there will also be some photos from the day.

I am working on the timings for the Saturday and will post a little later. However the intention is to get to Chris's around 9.15. Chris will line us up on the beach ready for launching at around 10.00 with us all leaving at 10.30.

Please remember it is a cruise in company and you are responsible for your own safety. It is advisable to buddy up with someone of a similar size. I will let Holyhead Coastguard know what we are up to and also the NCI at Porthdinllaen.

We have already had some generous donations from Dan and Emma, Clare and Phil, and Ian. Only another 840 to go to reach the 1000 target. Donations can be made on the day or via the Just Giving webpage at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/RoundBardsey.

Hi Nick, a few friends and family have asked if they can sponsor/donate to the cause via the justgiving page. Would it be at all possible to update the page with a few details of the trip, photos etc? I'm sure I can chase a few donations for this arduous task we're undertaking ;-) but a just conscious the page doesn't really hold any detail at the moment.

Kind Regards

Tom

Passage Plan

I have been looking at a passage plan and attached are two photos one with details of a route including times and mileage, the other with tidal flows around Bardsey. The tidal flows around Bardsey are not to be taken lightly. Overfalls occur between 4 and 7 miles west of Bardsey. The tide will be on the ebb and wind over tide could pose a problem. In particular if the wind is Force 4 between south east and west and with a spring tide it may create breaking seas of 3 to 4 metres. On the 6th the tide is between springs and neaps.

If there is any doubt in the weather that could cause a potential problem then I will venture as far as the Porth Dinllaen (Tycoch) or possibly Maen Mellt an island a little further down the Lynn Peninsula.

Please consider your own capabilities when taking on the passage.

In terms of a return journey this can be extended by calling in at Pilot Cove on Llandwyn Island - this has got to up with one of the top 10 beauty spots in the country and a real favorite of mine.

If the weather is really poor then the there is plan B with a run through the Swellies, possibly up to Puffin followed by a pint at the Gazelle.

Then there is always Sunday if Saturday is a complete washout. Here is hoping for good weather though!

Nick

Good shout, the year we did Ty Coch with PBI magazine was a long enough drag back against the waves, with many crew being lifted on to bigger boats.

Anyone is more than welcome as long as they are properly equipped and sufficiently competent. Please remember it is a rally and you are responsible for your own safety. Don't rely on anyone to bail him out!

We're hoping to make it down but it will be a last minute decision.
FYI, Just Giving is a commercial organisation who take 5% of any donations, I didn't know this until recently. I now prefer to donate directly to the charity concerned, rather than line someone's pockets. That's probably just the Yorkshireman in me though
