The 2002 race start - 1300 15th june.

Welcome to the online reports for the 2002 Three Peaks Yacht Race. The reporting team of Rob Howard and myself (David Lynch, Bluedome's editor.) tracked the race from the start line at Barmouth to the finish line at Corpach taking in Caernarfon, Whitehaven, Snowdon, Scafell and Ben Nevis along the way.

The 2002 race saw a brave finish from Geoff West as he skippered the final sailing leg from Whitehaven to Fort William in severe weather conditions. The words and pictures will give you an insight into this great adventure race we hope you enjoy the story of the race.
