The Three Peaks Yacht Race

The next exciting event coming up  near Pentre Bach http://www.pentrebach.com/ (apart from Jubilee Parties this weekend including Party at the Point in Fairbourne organised by Fairbourne Railway) is the Three Peaks Yacht Race .
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. Its an amazing sight to watch all the boats set off from Barmouth then their progress can be tracked via the Internet all the way up to Fort William. Some manage to complete the race in 2-3 days while others are forced to drop out or take their time admiring the scenery on the way. Find out more on http://www.threepeaksyachtrace.co.uk/
