Round Anglesey for Macmillan Cancer Support - April 19th 2014
 
2014 Annual Anglesey run is on again. April 19th. :dance:

Three castles, two bridges, Snowdon, numerous Islands and Lighthouses including South Stack, Two piers, great compay and some of Wales's finest scenery all in one day! Then the annual evening bash as always.

Can we get over 30 boats this year? :thumbs:

To launch, Chris Seddon (Chris Ty Calch on here) in Caernarfon can host a lot of you with Tractor launch at all states of tide, with trailer storage. His number is 07917 859345 Ty Calch, Llanfaglan, Caernarfon LL545RA

:speedboat:
10.30 am set off from Caernarfon (Chris Ty Calch's slip) High Water is 11.10 here.
Head up the Menai Strait (picking up me at Beaumaris Pier :D)to Conwy Castle (30 miles) where we can go up the river a little past the castle,then all tie up for a natter/beer/coffee and some chips on the front. :cheers: High Water here is 12.10

:bolt:Then we can head back round Anglesey to Caernarfon (60 miles) with the falling tide. If the weather is bad on the exposed Northerly side, or smaller boats want a slightly shorter distance home, they can head back through the Menai Strait. If we need shelter for re-fuelling etc we can drop in at Caernarfon, but no petrol is available. For info, most boats use circa 1-1.5L of fuel per mile, so carry enough!

Chris is looking in to an evening do again, I'm hoping a hog roast and pics from the day again like 2012, thread to come!

So who is in?.........

Touché! ;)

I'm going so the weather will be crap, you'll be right at home! We need your experience. Whilst I've been boating for over 30yrs, I've only been out twice. ;)

put me down for this one. i normally start at holyhead, but may for this one drive across the island and set off from the straits, i will decide closer to the time. a friend of mine has said he fancies doing a run to conwy so this may be the perfect opportunity for him to do it in relative safety.

HUMBER P4VWL 12 November 2013 20:06
