Schedule - Round Anglesey for Macmillan 2014

Schedule - Round Anglesey Ribnet 2014
Macmillan Cancer Care – 40 flags are available at 10 each from Tim&Linda

All boats are responsible for themselves as per Ribnet cruising guidelines. RIBnet Forums - Announcements in Forum : Upcoming RIB cruises You should be self sufficient and are to make you own decisions as to whether to proceed or return. Buddying up with a similar sized boat is wise just to watch each other.

Main party will be launching at Chris Seddon’s slip at Ty Calch 07917 859345. Once all in the water they will departing at 10.30am in an Anti-Clockwise direction around the Island, making way to Conwy Marinas Mulberry pub for Mid day. Follow experienced boats through the Swellies and Strait, but there’ll be plenty of water.

I'll join you just after the bridges most likely, I'm in the Black and Yellow humber commonly known as "The Cardinal".

The run to Conwy, even if there is bad weather will be manageable for most. Yes it may be lumpy in the latter part but it’s not far. It’s circa 30 miles from Caernarfon, sheltered to Beaumaris then open water to Conwy of about 12 miles. Only if there is rarer NE wind with a Force 6+ will we find it difficult to make it, based on experience over the past 25 yrs. But turn around at Puffin Island if you wish.

High tide is at mid day in Conwy, by all means pass the marina and go up to the castle for a nosey but PLEASE DO NOT go to the quayside and tie up as it is busy at Easter and having spoken to Matthew, the harbourmaster, 01492 596253, they can not cope with us all trying to come alongside the quay. The marina is open 3hrs either side roughly. Please note the speed limit as you enter the river. A few select ribs with banners may pop round with the buckets to see if we can collect some money.

Conwy Marina, is a private enterprise, run by John. There is a pub “The Mulberry” and John has said he is happy to host over 35 ribs for FREE right in front of the pub for a couple of hours. He will try and line/raft us all up in front of the pub, but if not on to pontoon H. There will likely be someone to greet us and point us in the right direction. Please listen to others when instructed, DO NOT just go on any pontoon!! This will provide us with a good decked area to have lunch, drinks, toilet break and conversation if nice and inside area if inclement.

There is fuel available, but please contact John at the marina ahead of the day on 01492 593000 to pre-warn.

We will then head out at about 1.30 to go around the island anti-clockwise running with the falling tide, (Weather providing) with a stop at Holyhead (no petrol) for a cuppa, toilet and a break. Then head round to Caernarfon in due course, with a possible stop at Pilots cove. Averaging 20mph we should make it back to Caernarfon by about 5.30. Very weather dependant.

If weather is poor, or people want a short run, they can then head back to Caernarfon in the shelter of the Strait. There and back is about 50m.

Round the Island incorporating Conwy is about 100-110 miles. Most 6m ribs will use circa 1-1.5L of fuel per mile. I’d advise 50% extra fuel to what you expect, as a buffer for bad weather.

There are 3 castles, 3 bridges, 2 piers, over 4 lighthouses (?) 4 marinas, a stately home, 2 lifeboat houses, plenty of Islands and wildlife and the Snowdonian Mountain range on route.... oh and the second most dangerous stretch of water in the UK (Menai Strait) This really is quality cruising ground. Let’s all enjoy the day, help others where you can, stay safe and meet some new people whilst raising some money for charity.

Evening do is at the Celtic Royal in Caernarfon, please PM Christyclach 07917 859345 on the forum as for food it is pre-order ticket only.

PLEASE DONT POST BANTER ON HERE, IF YOU HAVE A PERTINENT QUESTION THEN PLEASE ASK AS IT MAY BE WORTHWHILE FOR OTHERS TO SEE.

Channel 8 will be the channel we will be working on for the day.

The big black humber will be blasting about back and forth checking people at the back, more just an excuse to play and see how much fuel he can burn!

Please register or update a CG66 form with the coastguard

If you are coming round the island, please either register ro update your CG66 form with the coastguard. If they know your vessel type, colour, safety kit, typical number aboard etc they will find you much more quickly.

MCA - CG66

High tide Conwy 2.20pm so we can get in the marina from 11.20. Low water at Caernarfon bar is 8.20pm so we have a good 6hrs or so from leaving at 1pm to get round and over with plenty of water on the bar..

No. People will decide on the day depending on weather. Head back to Puffin from Conwy, then head back down the Strait or right of the island towards Moelfre. It'll be very apparent whose going which way!!

Ordering food at the mulberry

Was thinking last night that 38 boats (+more people) will be turning up to the Mulberry pub all at once wanting food and drink. Never been to this pub before so would it be worth us ordering the food the day before or in advance if we are on a tight schedule?

I'm asking as my wife and mum will be meeting us at the Mulberry and could organize the ordering of food in advance if that is any help to us?

dont know about anybody else, but tend to just snack on the boat as ribbing on a full belly doesnt work for me!

Up to individuals. I think a beer from the bar and butties brought along on the boat will be the most logical.

its funny, it is always said that alcohol and boats are a bad combination - impaired judgement, less likely to survive in cold water etc, and yet here on a site that constantly bangs on about lifejackets, and use of kill chords etc, we find that 'having a beer' is quite acceptable and doesnt raise any questions at all!

Go on then, I'll have a nibble...

Are you saying that in your opinion having a beer is 'bad' when out on the boat, or that the RIBnet community is two-faced, or both?

I agree with festa being in control of a boat is no different to a car .. Do not drink and drive ..!

Well I'm perfectly happy to have a beer; one beer of no more than 4% by volume, when out on the boat.

Many are, least ways I've not seen many stopping at the gazelle on the run home and not having a beer, or a red wine 😄🍻👍 all things in moderation
