    Default East Coast Circumnavigations

    The Stour thread set me thinking.

    How many islands on the East Coast can you circumnavigate in a lift keel yacht ?

    Has anyone done the lot ?
    It is never too late to have a happy childhood. Buy a boat.

    No I have not done them all, although it depends on what you define as an island. I assume you mean bits of land that are not covered at mean high water. There are quite a few that are circumnavigable.

    Also depends on how far your definition of East Coast extends -

    Thames
    Lower Horse and Upper Horse (Holehaven Creek)

    I have a vague recollection that Charlie Stock may have circumnavigated Canvey Island.

    Isleworth Ait
    Brentford Ait
    Raven's Ait

    Presumably many in non-tidal Thames.

    The Broads
    Quite a few if you can get your mast down to get under low bridges.

    North Norfolk
    Scolt Head Island - I think someone said on here recently could be circumnavigated (but perhaps only by dinghy?)

    Terra Incognito
    Continue up to Northumberland and Scotland and there's a whole host more.

    Could take you a while, but a very noble cause!

    Here's a few more; the next one up may be more of a challenge.

    A friend of mine from Paglesham has circumnavigated Wallasea Island in in his lug rigged dinghy. Had to do some porterage over the road.

    Pewet Island (best one avoids the acrow)
    Sunken Island (by launch -does that count)
    Skipper's Island (took three consecutive tides - does that count as a circumnavigation or is that a circummistake?)

    If that is your definition of circumnavigation, you could include Mersea Island
    I respect my elders, but I can't find many now
