Circumnavigations: Walney Island

Now the second shortest circumnavigation distance on the current PSK list (Scarba), Walney Island provides an ideal route for the budding circumnavigator or for those looking for one a little more 'fast and furious'. But once again, Walney Island should not be underestimated - good planning is required to ensure fast water, or in fact any water at all. Beware of the shallow waters that can provide lively conditions along the west shore too.
Walney is a regular paddling haunt and there are many who have completed this trip, we just need to hear more details...
