Last challenge coming up – an open crossing to Flat Holms

So a little over a year after I took up sea kayaking I am hoping to complete my last challenge of a committing open crossing. Next Sunday, weather permitting, I hope to complete the paddle from a beach near me (Lilstock) into the Bristol Channel out to Steep Holm and to land for refreshment at Flat Holm, then back to Lilstock a total of 22nm (43km).

This is a committing paddle, into the fast muddy tides of the Bristol Channel, so hopefully the weather will be kind to me. At least their is the promise of a pint in the Gull and Leek on Flat Holm to look forward to! For the location see the Open crossing – Holms, not planning to be solo on this one but may have to if I can’t drum up any company!
