Cemlyn to The Skerries and back on a spring ebb tide, 5 Jan 2018

A great day out with Ed for our first trip of 2018 to The Skerries.

9.68m Tide Liverpool.  SW Swell 0.8m, 10sec.  Negligible wind.

We arrived at Harry Furlough’s at 12:00 for the start of the ebbing tiderace and surfed there for one hour.


We arrived at The Skerries at 13:50, following a surf at Victoria Bank.


We departed The Skerries at 14:20, to attempt the crossing of Carmel Sound.  The ebb current was now at its strongest rate.
