Richard Sims Scillies Crossing

Crossings: Isles of Scilly

A little warmer than the Irish Sea, the crossing to the Isles of Scilly may not be the longest but it takes the sea paddler away from the psychological comfort of the UK coastline to venture tentatively 22 nm out into the rolling Atlantic. The destination is a beautiful one and definitely worth the trip, just pick the best of the weather.

If you are aiming for a fast time on this one then please time to a beach where you can step out and walk to your destination - timing to the first rock you come across is not a full crossing in our book - More Info
