Clifftop View Isle of Lundy

Crossings: Lundy - England

Lundy lies about 10 nm off the Devon coast and around 25 nm from South Wales. The granite outcrop is a regular destination for tourist boats and helicopter rides as visitors are attracted by the scenery, wildlife and history.
The relatively short crossing from Devon is a sea kayaker favourite but should not be underestimated, Lundy is exposed to the Atlantic swells and constantly swept by fast tidal flows as the Bristol Channel fills and empties. This is a frequent sea kayaking destination, many others have paddled it.

Noteworthy is Nick Arding's time, which includes the return journey plus a lap of the island and a pint in the Marisco Tavern!
