Crossings and Circumnavigations - an article on Sidetracked

With just weeks to go before we make our attempt on the Bob Graham, my focus is far from the sea and has been for some time. What plans to paddle have been made this year, have in the most part been thwarted by the weather, a trip around Islay the latest casualty. But these things are cyclical I think, and it will not be long before I am camped on the open coast, the lure of trips like that which Tim and I completed around the Isle of Skye, growing once more.

Published on Sidetracked today, this is an account of our trip, one which remains among the best I have completed. Click on the link above or here: Sidetracked Magazine, and take a look around.
