Penmaenmawr to Puffin Island Time Trial

This Time Trial is an unsupervised standing challenge. Read The Safety Page

Simple course: Start on the beach at Penmaenmawr, to the East of the sailing club. Round Puffin Island and return to the beach at Pen. Clock starts and stops when boat and sand part/meet.

Beware of the tide races at the East end of the island. With any wind (especially E or N) these can get lumpy and give little warning.

Note: June 2018 - Height Restrictions have been placed on the car park at Penmaenmawr beach.

Note: This is an open water time-trial, with a crossing of open, tidal and fairly shallow water. Puffin Island is exposed and conditions can be surprisingly uncomfortable at times. Especially with any component of N wind - now, due or recent - you can find lumpy or unpleasant conditions on the N side of the island with little warning. Conditions change rapidly on this course - be prepared to turn back.
