When Nelson described the Menai Straits as the world's most treacherous stretch of water he wasn't kidding. But he didn't have a 250hp Yamaha engine. We did the straits and swellies tour with my 13-year-old son and his friend and we all loved it. It's...More

Hi I am looking to do something like a rib this weekend with my wife, she last went on one 2 years ago out of Cardiff Bay, we used to go out on our motorbike but the past year or so my wife has not been that great so I thought this would be the best way to get some speed and fun back on her face (we did a rip cruise this year but very slow and very tame. Do you have any space this weekend for two if so how much would it be and for how long (times would also be good) my wife sometimes use has to use a stick to walk with but with my arm on hers she can get in and out of a boat. Thank you Gary
