During this years race we followed
the teams from Barmouth to Corpach via Snowdon, Ennerdale,
Wasdale, Scafell, Whitehaven, Croabh Haven, the sound
of Luing,the Corran Narrows and finally to Ben Nevis and
the finish line. Over 2000 images of the race have been
taken so this is not the end of the web site, Rob and

Plans are already afoot to
make the 25th race in 2001 something special, we just

400 sea miles and racing up the highest mountains in England
and Wales the race generated a great finish with three
boats arriving in Fort William within 63 minutes of each
See you all next year.
