Barmouth to Fort William Three Peaks Yacht Race

Barmouth to Fort William Three Peaks Yacht Race


The Three Peaks Yacht Race is one of the oldest and most remarkable extreme multi-sport endurance races in the world. This classic sporting event combining sailing, running and cycling, challenges intrepid teams to sail from the mid-Wales coastal resort of Barmouth, up the west coast of the UK, to finish in Fort William. On the way they will scale the highest peaks in Wales, England and Scotland.

The race draws competitors from a wide variety of sporting backgrounds and sailing experience, ranging from off-shore cruising to round-the-world racing. Sailing and sports clubs, military and company teams all enter the race and compete on equal terms.

Race start is preceded by a procession of the yachts from Barmouth Harbour to the start line off shore, with many events, stalls & music on the quayside to entertain onlookers.

The race proceeds to Caernarfon where two crew members race to the summit of Snowdon, then on to Whitehaven for the ascent of Scafell Pike and finally Fort William and Ben Nevis.
