Getting to the North end of the Island is key to day one.
A good flood tide will help us get to Cemlyn Bay or even a little further
We could put in at Port Trecastell (Cable Bay), Rhoscolyn or Porth Dafarch. The further south we start the less we have to do against the tide (1-1 5 knots) on the last day. But we have to bear in mind we want to get to the North Coast by the end of day one – could be wind dependent??
If we hug Trearddur Bay and travel through the Penryhn Mawr (Thursday, 10:30) past South and North Stacks having a good look at the cliffs and then from North Stack head across Holyhead Bay to The Skerries, were we could pull out, or just paddle through the Skerries. If time is really pressing, avoid The Skerries and paddle through the Carmel Sound.
Setting up the trip down the Menai Straits on day three is the key to day two.
If we can get to Penmon Point by the end of day two, we can set off next day two hours before High Water (Sunday, 07:55) and down the Menai Straits.
When we exit the Menai Straits we will have the tide against us, 1-1 5 knots, if it is too much, maybe we have the wind against, we can pull out, have a brew and let the ebb finish and the flood begin.
