Are the sandbanks close to the estuary?

At Llanelli you usually find the sandbanks appear about 300m from the shoreline. Depending on the size of the tide they will disappear during high tide, they were quite small today but still high enough to shield the water from the wind and create completely flat water for 10m or so. I have seen them as high as about 1m but they shift regularly. At Pembrey they appear about mid tide to the east of the entrance to the Fisherman's car park.

Early lessons at Aber today, was 11m wind until mid morning when it ramped up for an hour to 7m ! Just when students were having a break..perfect! ..Dropped back down to finish lesson and went crap when Mike P turned up to his dismay!

Car park at Aber is brand spanking new, with a nice 2.1m height restriction on the entrance, think it may be becoming pay and display at some point as well?

Talking to the Lord of the car park at Rest yesterday he needs to see the full ticket on display windows or he is gonna start throwing fines around, talked him out of fining a few vehicles yesterday..
Remember it is £1 for 1hour only, £2.80 for day,..not an extra pound for every hour you stay!!

I`ll be out for lessons tomorrow and Sunday as long as wind pulls through..looks sunny sunny

Aber is pretty littered with rocks, stones shells etc at high tide mark for about 300m from the sea wall..not good if you like the HT shallows..either take a hike down the beach or wait till the tide drops back is my advice.

I will ring the council Monday . The plans specifically had the height barrier removed.
The chances of removing now will be slim , but as it's not got planning permission we can attack it that way. Vw will be ok but crafter size vans won't or my camper ..... Grrrrrrrr

Maybe you could claim the VAT back on it Al. There was a guy on the beach in Llanelli who was getting the VAT back on his kites as he was travelling with them. Good work!
