The Three Peaks Yacht Race
Talk by Geoffrey Palmer

In 2007, Geoffrey Palmer, ESC,  together with members of the family, entered the Three Peaks Yacht Race. This classic adventure for teams of runners and sailors is one of the ‘must do’ events for any sportsman. Starting at Barmouth, Palmer had to navigate his yacht ‘Shardik’, a Contessa 32, up the wild west coast of the UK, taking in Caernarfon, Whitehaven and Fort William.

Two members of the team then had to run up the highest peaks in Wales, England and Scotland: Snowdon, Scarfell Pike and Ben Nevis, a distance equivalent to three marathons.

Did the team make it? Geoffrey Palmer’s illustrated talk will capture the highs and lows of this daunting challenge.
