Bardsey Island

Time Trial Islands

These island Time Trials are shorter than those detailed on the Circumnavigation pages and are for those looking for something fast and furious - or just something shorter and easier, depending on your outlook.

So, just what is the difference between a Circumnavigation and a Time-Trial Island? Well, we don't rightly know to be honest, but we have come up with a totally arbritrary cut-off figure of 2 hours (or so).

As Brian Turnbull points out: "Never the less they are challenges, that can be completed in a shorter time and will suit the paddler who perhaps doesn't have the time to take a bite at something bigger." Let us know if you have a local challenge you would like to add.

Note: These time-trials contain stretches of open-water paddling and exposed stretches of tidal coastline - do not underestimate them.
