We head north east along the Menai Straits before turning to pass between Puffin Island and the Anglesey itself before heading into  Red Wharf Bay. The fleet reaches its most northerly mark off Moelfre before turning back to finish off Traeth Bychan, the home of Red Wharf Bay Sailing and Watersports Club.
