Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.Thanks for supporting us in our 3 Peaks Yacht Race Challenge. Your sponsorship is very much appreciated. I am sure you will be pleased to hear we successfully completed the race. It was an amazing experience, great fun. Whilst we were the last yacht to finish, 3 other yachts did not complete the race. All in all it was a notable achievement as it was our first attempt. To date we have raised £4000 for our chosen charities; Hospice of the Good Shepherd, St Anns Hospice Heald Green, SOS Children & Round Table Children's Wish. We kept a blog over the course of the race and its got lots of information, reports and photos in it. http://silversurfersyachtrace2010.blogspot.com/
A team of 5 from Helsby Running Club and SolutionPT has been assembled to sail from Barmouth, via Caernarfon, to climb Snowdon; Whitehaven, to climb Scafell Pike and finally onto Fort William to climb Ben Nevis. 100% powered by sail, running and cycling legs!
We set sail at 16:00 hours on Saturday 19th June and hope to finish within the week. The race organisers hold a 'finish' party on Thursday evening and we would ideally love to be there too!
