Sail up the wild West Coast and run to the summits of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis, the highest peaks of Wales, England & Scotland. A classic adventure race for teams of runners and sailors, since 1977.

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. Team members must be over 18 years old (those over 16 will be considered with parental & Skipper's consent.)

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.

The original Three Peaks Yacht Race is one of the oldest and most remarkable multi-sport endurance races in the world.

It draws competitors from all sporting backgrounds & with sailing experience from off-shore cruising to round-the-world races. Sailing & sports clubs, military & company teams all enter & compete on equal terms.

If you have a spirit of adventure this could be just the challenge you are looking for!
