Lightning Reflex approaches the Corran Narrows with their last serviceable sail!

June 18th Fort William

With the record book being rewritten Lightning Reflex has arrived at Corpach and despatched her two runners, Adrian Bailey and Aled Rees to Ben Nevis. Wild weather conditions and fantastic sailing have given us one of the fastest races for years.


Lightning passes the Corran Lighthouse.


 


With amazing timing Geoff arrives just as a wild rain storm hits the jetty.
The white spots on the images are lumps of rain although we would not be surprised to see a blizzard.


Kit check before the run.


As the rain subsides the runners head for the towpath along the Caledonian Canal and the road to the foot of the Ben.
