Get out and Paddle...
Positioned in the centre of the Irish Sea, and often viewed from the mainland, the Island has cast a spell over many a sea paddler. Whether a crossing to the island or a circumnavigation is the burning challenge, the island is a frequent goal. The Isle of Man is another island that sets a testing challenge to the paddler determined to complete a circumnavigation within a day; it also provides many good options for more leisurely multi-day adventures. Once again good planning is needed; the tides flow into the Irish Sea from both the north and the south to meet here along the coastline. The Isle of Man also provides fantastic scenery, challenging tide races and plenty of wildlife, including Basking Sharks.
