3 Peaks Yacht Race

Hi Folks

The 3 Peaks Yacht race starts in just over a week now. Boat, legs and logistics are just about ready and raring to go!

A number of you have asked what our schedule is for the race in case you want to support us along the way.

Attached is a best estimate timetable which depends on the winds (rather than how our legs feel!).

Once the race is underway, each boat has a GPS tracker, and can be tracked on the wesbite. So you could monitor our progress on

For an update on how we are getting on, Trevor’s phone is the main boat contact phone (24/7!!), Bill the main back-up team phone (24/7) and Richard Stradling (evenings) the home phone for contacting each other during the race.

If you see us and take any good photos then please send them to as we hope to update our just giving web pages as the race progresses.

Its still not too late to sponsor us (a big thankyou if you already have!)
