Circumnavigations: Isle of Jura

The circumnavigation of Jura is a challenging classic. Distance alone makes it quite a single day undertaking. Tidal flows vary throughout the route, and while there are sheltered stretches there is extensive exposure too. Throw in the unpredictable Sound of Jura and of course, the Gulf of Corryvreckan, and you've got the ingredients for quite a day out.
Norbert Ziobr sets the standard for this demanding paddle.
