The second event of the year was the Shakedown Cruise, over the May Day Bank Holiday. Thanks to all the hardy sailors – Myfanwy, Pisces, Split Decision, Night Song, Mahalo, Sunya and Amanzi – for joining in with the annual attempt to go round Anglesey. Yet again the weather beat us as it was far too windy to cross the Caernarfon Bar on Sunday morning so we elected to sail to Caernarfon and back to Conwy instead, stopping at Dylans and Fu’s for refreshments as we went.
As it turned out both Saturday and Sunday were excellent sails and on Sunday we managed to sail all the way from Caernarfon back to Conwy under head-sail. See below for a compilation video of the weekend.
