Nice boat. and a proper size

I went to Anglesey once as a kid. I recall a large castle. and was quite impressed that one of my namesakes had been hung there

I love sailing around Anglesey - it's a fabulous place. The shape of Puffin Island is forever etched on my brain.

Hi Trowell,

I've got quite a few thousand miles under my belt now, but the Swellies still rank as the all time scariest ride, take care there.

Welcome onboard,

My sister and Brother in law lived in Bangor for many years and I spent many happy holidays there. As Duncan states some challenging sailing there.

Regards

Alan
