Anglesey -Wednesday: a Dutch invasion of the Stacks

At 1.00 A.M. we would meet Walter at Soldiers Point (next to Holyhead Harbour) to paddle and play a bit along the Stacks. As we we were heading from the campsite to this meeting point, suddenly a Dutch car loaded with kayaks drove behind us. It was Nico, who just arrived from Holland at Anglesey. Nico spontaneously decided to join us on our paddle trip: 4 Dutchmen on the water.
With the tide running and a Southerly wind blowing up to 5 or 6 Bft. the sea was lively. We surfed on the standing waves of the North Stack tidal race and enjoyed confusing water around the headlands.
Soldiers Point - North Stack - South Stack and back: 16 km, S-SW 5-6 Bft.
