July 20th/21st Pwllheli to Porthdinllaen ..Organiser Mark (Aquaplane)
We have considered two options for the trip to Porthdinllaen
Go through Bardsey sound at 08:00a.m to catch the last of the northerly flow . This means that the rest of the journey will be against the neap tide and of course an early start from Pwllheli is required at 05:00am.
Advantage of option one is that it should be possible to select a good spot to anchor before things get busy later on that day.
To go through Bardsey at 16:00 with the northerly tide with you all the way to Porthdinllaen .
This will mean arriving later and of course the anchorage will be busier.
Forecast winds Northerly F2 so may be some swell but veering to easterlies overnight which should calm things down!
The pub is open until 11pm, there is live music and a BBQ, though I think most people will take their own catering ...Aquaplane will brings some bbqs ashore
There are some boats from Porthdinorwic coming to meet us, and the challenge is to empty their so called "funboxes"
