Excellent moorings at Whitehaven Marina,
the new mid-point of the Three Peaks Race.

Thunderchild makes it through the sea lock into Whitehaven Marina.
With a lifting keel she only draws 2' 6" and can get in at low water. A distinct advantage in a race where time matters. Thunderchild has done well in the light winds which have slowed the race fleet down.

Ready to land.

Peter Powell races along the pontoon to the checkpoint.

Every stage of the race has a kit check for the runners, even on a hot, sunny afternoon full survival gear must be carried.

Black Sail here we come.
