Once again, yawn, will attempt to go around Anglesey at the start of the season.

High tide Menai is around 1pm BST. Its a big 9.74m < Edit: it's 7.8 actually > so it'll be fun and its best to run with it clockwise. I will head through the bridges at just before 1/2 Water, 9.30 am. Will pass Caernarfon Ty Coch where all the dry suit brigade launch at Chris's slip with his tractor (10 ish) and then head round for picnic lunch in Holyhead marina hopefully. Onwards then right round for a charge up the Strait for a beer or two at the Gazelle.

This year I'm going at my own pace, I've swept for two/three years now shepherding smaller craft home in inclement weather (it'll be flat calm now). So whilst we do all help each other by nature, everyone really must buddy up with similar craft and make your own judgement whether to continue or turn around if weather is poor.

Hope to see a lot of you out again as it's awesome seeing 20-30 boats all charging around the island, like last year.

Again, this is just a get together, you are all responsible for your own crew and boat's safety and must observe all the local rules and regs.

A few others may organise an evening bash at the campsite in Caernarfon that night on another thread. Last year with a Hog roast and projected photos of the day scrolling through really did top it off. Be great to see you all again, as most of you regularly point out, I don't get out much now I'm a dad twice over!

Tick tock, no too long.

I've made the last three annual Anglesey trips. Not a bad record.

Enjoy Scotland, sure you could do both. Can't public sector peeps just take a "Duvet day"? ;)

PeterM 12 December 2012 12:12

I'm going to be super cheeky ....as the 27th is my actual Birthday is there any chance of blagging a seat on the way round with someone please ? :whistling:

Or of course I convince Whisper to tow his Ribcraft up ( I can tow it ! :thumbs:) - I know he'd love it !

whisper 12 December 2012 12:17

Haha! I was going to offer a swap, a seat on this cruise or round IOM for a seat on my boat for round Isle of Wight.

Lack of spare time Neil :(

Good lad Neil, still not seen Nemanda in the flesh. You happy with the Ally hull?

Glad to see TT running his tour business again. Little do they know he makes them sign a disclaimer and contract of payment once they are 250metres offshore! ;) either that or he sinks his RIB and swims ashore in his Black Shadow!
