Three Peaks Yacht Race

08 April 2015

The Three Peaks Yacht Race is one of the oldest and most extreme multi-sport endurance races in the world, combining sailing, running and cycling.

Teams of four or five per yacht sail from Barmouth to Fort William, with two of the crew climbing the highest mountains of Wales, England and Scotland en-route, running the equivalent of three marathons in 3 or 4 days.  All team members must be over 18 years old.

Use of engines is not allowed, except for safety reasons in specific areas in ports.  However, a unique feature of the race is that rowing is allowed, and over the years, many teams have been known to row during light airs and periods of calm.  Back up support teams can meet the teams on land but are restricted in what support they can give.  Many teams participate without any form of back up at all.

Make A Difference

As an endurance challenge like no other, many teams entering the Three Peaks Yacht Race choose to raise sponsorship funds for their chosen charity.  Given the three disciplines of the race (sailing, running and cycling) many people choose to raise funds for either Sail 4 Cancer, Run 4 Cancer or Bike 4 Cancer!

We would be delighted if you would consider supporting us!  We will supply you with a flag and boat decals in addition to setting up a secure online fundraising page for you on to collection donations and messages of support from colleagues, friends and family members.  We can also help with cycling clothing and specialist nutrition.
