Day 52 Negotiating the Menai Straits 25/07/16

Our next stop to spread the word and promote Action for Children was Caernarfon. To get there we needed to navigate through the Menai Straits and the infamous Swellies (a short stretch of water 0.8Nm between the two Menai bridges with a maze of rocks, islands and strong tides).

We past through the Swellies comfortably with light winds and slack tide. The rest of the afternoon was enjoyable and a good learning experience for Ant as we tacked our way upwind through the twisting channel surrounded by beautiful countryside and into Victoria marina, Caernarfon. 

Time to see the sights, shake the bucket and tell this part of Wales our story.
