Great video of 2013 entry by a team of sailors, runners and cyclists based on Jonathan Hart's Jeanneau Sun Rise "Bumpie" sailing to then tackling the three highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland.
What a fantastic idea for a race. Love the video too. Looks like such a good time. I laughed hysterically when the Star Wars Storm Troopers music was playing. Can I steal that idea next time I pass someone in a race? Not sure how often that chance will ever come up for us to use though

the toilet was not the only problem, but by some chance, i had a length of tubing in the fore cabin holding the headlining up, so stripped down the system and replaced it whilst at anchor, it was just mostly smelly, not something i would recommend.
the other issue was the tear in the main sail and a big rip in the genoa, main sail sown up beautifully by a crew member. we then made dynema strops to hold a spare sail (hanks) on to the roller reefing, worked well.
the most major issue of the whole race was running out of mixers and ice for the Rum. nearly a disaster, so we had to drink it neat.
all in all a fantastic race, and recommended to anyone,
were now on the search for a new sponsor for the 2014 season and support crew for the running elements of this race.
