Club Trip to Anglesey's Inland Sea, June 2022

Words and photos by John Lymer

12 of us, including members and their partners, once again had a great weekend at this little known gem! Some could only spare 1 night, while others had 2 or 3. We stayed at Pen Y Bont Caravan & Camping Site at Four Mile Bridge and that's were we launch from. Friday was warm and sunny and Force 4, Saturday quite cold and just Force 3/2. Sunday was the best day though - sunny, with temperatures just mid-teens, but the wind built from Force 5 to 6. Spring tides peaked early to mid-afternoon each day and the lagoon was sailable for well over 4 hours every day. And the icing on the cake - the water was between 30 and 80cm deep in the whole of the area we sailed! So it really didn't matter that almost all my duck gybe attempts ended in a fall. Saturday was marginal planing conditions even with very big sails, but it suited those still learning to windsurf and those with paddleboards. Saturday night was barbecue night. 14C and falling isn't ideal for a barbecue, but we're hardy windsurfers so it was very sociable anyway!

If any of this is tempting you - we're there again on 23rd September! Book early with the caravan site though. And be sure to bring some wind.

Here's some of the action, mostly featuring Andy Pepper (Pryde VX3 sail with a red luff tube) and includes a brief airborne moment too ....

No hot water at the moment! We'll let you know when it's fixed.

Please walk close to water's edge if you have to land in the nature reserve to the right/West of clubhouse. Birds are nesting in the rocks.

Was hoping to make it today, but only just got the van back together, Time for a shower and couple of beers. Fingers crossed the problem may be solved., so should be up at the weekend.

Change of plans so can't make it today (Weds).

John L - 27/06/2022 - 22:43

Activity Night could be simple races, feedback from others, practising a manoeuvre or whatever members want. Lack of interest tho’ so I may go up earlier, before the wind drops.

Chris P - 27/06/2022 - 15:34

What does an activity night entail John? Is there bingo?

Chris P - 27/06/2022 - 15:34

I'll be up later on Tuesday if the forecast holds.
