Excellent Indy, glad you're coming.

I assume you mean Conwy?! I believe you can go 8 miles up to the bridge, unless you have VERY shallow draught. The quay is great at high tide. Tie up to the wall and have a pint and chips.

Don't you get fed up of cruising around the same place HP ?
You should try somewhere different now and again mate :D

Well said.
.... Once I've done ALL the pubs around Anglesey by boat, I'll move on to territories new! I reckon I've only done about 1/3.

Yes, Conwy, must be getting over excited already. Sure GPS said it was further than that but might be wrong.
Can't imagine the view if there were 2 dozen plus ribs going for a quick potter down a couple of miles and mooring up outside the pub!

Good work! Best to avoid that midge infested land when you can. ;)

Glad you're coming along, looks like a big turnout again from all over the country!! Incredible really how many people come from so far afield. :)

That sounds like a subtle announcement of something.... Does the Missus know?

Beenee 17 November 2013 15:03

Hopefully us !!
 
Looks great. We've launched from Chris's before. Do you all tend to stay at same campsite? If so which one?

2014 Annual Anglesey run is on again.

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?.........

. Great idea. Ribtickler will be there
