I made an early start today to catch the tide – up at 3am and on the water by 5.30. It’s near spring tides, which helped a lot, and I had a bit of a breeze behind me so the miles went by quickly.
It was a bit bumpy at Penrwn Mawr, but otherwise all very calm. I passed just outside the mouse islands on the north coast of Anglesey which seemed to work well, and once I reached Point Lynas, I crossed directly to Great Ormes Head.
By midday, I’d covered 35NM and stopped at Llandudno after 40NM as the tide turned against me.
