Dear Forumites

I am looking to help a friend sail his newly acquired 40' yacht from Portishead Marina (near Avonmouth Docks) back to our home port of Holyhead' departure around mid April ( tide timing important given the strength of flow !)

Has anyone undertaken a similar trip and any tips & advice; including stopping points etc. would be gratefully received ?

NB We are OK on the last bit into Holyhead but would appreciate any/all advice and tips from Portishead into an overnight stop in Pembroke e.g. Milford Haven etc. then the the first bit heading up Cardigan (will probably go straight for H/H)
