3 Peaks Yacht Race - 2nd Overall
Unfortunately our 5 minute lead wasn't quite enough to hold off the elite fell runners from White Rose. In many ways we knew that when the tidal gate at the Corran Narrows didn't create a gap. Our skipper, Will, and John ran well but their 5 hours was like a Wayfarer against a foiling moth when compared with the 3hrs and 8 minutes in which White Rose's runners covered the 19 miles and 1423m. So second place, overall, first Tilman Trophy (all-rounder class) and lots of trophies for the sailing legs. And the best bit: we're all motivated to have another go! We had good debrief session during the long mini-bus journey home and I'll blog later with some thoughts.
