Gales change plans for launch

This was meant to be the scene tomorrow (Sunday).  Capercaille sailing past Plas Newydd, the first of over a hundred special NT places on the Welsh coast, as we were being saluted by our colleagues from the font lawn.
But alas it's not to be.  This photo will have to suffice for now.  With gusts approaching a full gale, John wisely decided not to attempt the passage through the Menai Strait's treacherous Swellies to an uncertain anchorage at Felinheli.  Conditions must have been bad, as I have it on good authority that John is sometimes seen going out into a choppy sea when less courageous yachtsmen are heading for port.

So tomorrow's launch will be at Siliwen, by Bangor Pier at about midday.  Why not head to the end of the pier to wave us off on our Sails Around Wales adventure?
