Whitesands Bay & Ramsey Island, West Wales
Spectacular and challenging location with changeable currents.
Make sure you are well prepared, trained and have good equipment / support before venturing out. Particularly high risk around Ramsey Island due to tidal race (The 'Bitches') between the island and mainland.
Welsh Rowing organise regular annual 'round Ramsey' events, so try and link in with them for some moral and logistical support.
