Noel Webb arrives on Anglesey

Yesterday evening, a salt crusted wet black dressed guy comes up the stairways with Nigel Dennis, directly heading for the shower (and after that, 'raiding' the kitchen for food). It is Noel Web, that is circumnavigating mainland UK. Weeks of bad weather prevented any good progress. Last week he was still stormbound in Pembrokeshire. Now taking advantage of favourable weather (Summer finally?), he yesterday paddled from the tip of the LLynn Peninsula (about 65 km south) to Holyhead. Beautiful sunny weather, blue skies with bright white cumulus clouds. Yes, for the last few days it seems that Summer has finally arrived. This morning already Noel continues on his expedition. He is eager, and tip-top fit, to get some mileage in. For information on Noel Webb's challenge, visit his expedition website at:
