    Have a look at post 13 in 2015 on this thread http://www.ybw.com/forums/showthread...olyhead+marina . There's probably others.

    As an aside I would have never considered leaving my boat in the water there over winter, even in summer it was problematic. Nothing to do with being wise after the event.

    If I'd wanted to live in a Banana Republic I'd have gone to South America.

    Yes when I had my boat in the Menai 1o years ago the general belief amongt boaties I knew was that the marina would all end up in the corner with a big blow from the east.

    Wind would not neccesarily be an issue in that location but serious wash can be.
    Now currently in No2 Basin.

    Quite. I commissioned a yacht in Bangor about ten years ago. Everyone I asked about berthing told me about the venerability of Holyhead Marina.

    I would have said it wasn't just local 'know-alls' who questioned its design, but it was common knowledge that the place had its problems and would one day end in tears.

    Interesting that the videos appear to show the boats on moorings still where they were. The marina has been established since my time in North Wales waters but even 20 years ago it was known that easterlies were bad news, even for moorings.

    I suspect he meant the mini mart up the hill on the left?

    The Marina management are reported to have put the wind force as F9, RAF Valley reported F8. Those wind strengths aren't off the scale at all, the only sligtly remarkable things were the direction. and spring tides. The Royal Charter storm October 1859, Anglesey, was an F12 Easterly. A 100 years and a day later the Hindlea was also wrecked in F12 Easterlies in the same spot as the Royal Charter.

    Holyhead Sailing club have just published this..

    It would appear that they are doing their utmost to both keep Holyhead open for business to visitors and offering mooring space to both those affected a.nd for the new season.

    It is good to see that GJW are doing their best to support mooring users.

    I was down in Cornwall on business the other day.
    Lots of pontoons removed for the winter.
