We don’t know yet! That’s the question in the minds of the round UK paddlers Natalie and Michal tonight. Not being familiar with the crossing, I did a quick Google maps check. And I estimate it to be 20km to Lundy from the north coast of Devon and then a 5-6 km respite up the coast of Lundy then a 50km open crossing to the south coast of Wales. Not for the faint-hearted. Follow them on their onwards progress via their excellent blog HomeSeaHome and photographs plus SPOT tracking. Spur them on by leaving a comment and support their excellent cause.
The biggest crossing I have done is a mere 13km in comparison, and I found this to be challenging enough in terms of not getting disheartened or over-whelmed. What’s yours? What are your tips, strategies for longer distances?
