This is called Shipwrecked because the bay, Hell's Mouth, is a treacherous place in a south westerly gale and a rising tide and has claimed numerous shipwrecks over the centuries...

SPECIFIC SECTION NOTES - CP11 - CP12:
Good section to start with. Once in Abersoch you will go over a bridge and turn left. Once you hit a T junction with a lane in front of you, turn right and the signs further down that road will be visible, you will be taking a left turn. Once onto the final section head straight onto the beach for a few meters this is due to a cliff edge (not massive but you will need to back track if you stay on the high ground). It’s them onto the high ground and turn right to the finish of that section.

GROUND CONDITIONS:
Ranges from gravel, tracks, tarmac, mud some ankle deep, slippery and jagged rock. Hopefully the track would have dried out by May (but this is Brutal Events, so will most probably be hurricanes and tornados).

NAVIGATION:
Fairly straight forward, coastal path is well signed. Pembrokeshire is the Acorn and Welsh Coastal Route signs. This changes at the RNLI station at Poppit Sands. It is then a Celtic symbol with the Welsh Coastal Path sign. This carries on through St Dogmaels, (be aware in St Dogmaels some signs are missing, but the bracket is still there and you can work out the route to take.) Once you go over the stone arch bridge close to CP3, this then changes to the Ceredigion sign and Welsh coastal path sign. Pay attention when entering built up areas, as the signs can be hard to see.

IMPORTANT:
Never follow the signs with a lone figure as this is just a general walking route. The only time you should follow it is when it is with a coastal path sign.

If using the GPX file, it is fairly accurate. A few times it will say you are off route. But if you’re on a well defined track, then you’re right and it will bring you back on course. For the recce, I used the coastal signs and only used the Garmin to check the route.

If you’re using crew, there are numerous places along the route that they can get to you for aid between the main CPs. Be aware some of the roads are narrow and single lane traffic.

Toilets are sparse, so use them when you see them!
