As if to show the Force 10 conditions are coming the race marshalls umbrella
decides to give in to the forces of nature.

June 16th Whitehaven

Three Peaks Yacht racing is a curious type of event, there appears to be little happening then in a few moments the race springs to life again. As we wait for the runners from Lightning Reflex and the Royal Marines to come back from Scafell the boat carrying the Stormcruiser team arrive quickly followed by Team Caol Ila. Kit is checked, bikes are sorted and we have four teams on Scafell.

Compulsary kit check

Time to relax a little while their runners tackle the hills.

Team Caol ila climb the jetty ramp to the marshalls caravan and their bikes.

After a few minutes time out they are off for the long miles to Scafell.
