    Had a look at the SIPR and it may be better suited for a someone with a running background ?? – Albeit I’ve never ran in those locations. Interesting that its not classed as an ISAF Category 3 Offshore Race, which may make sorting a boat easier as well.

    Larry – I’m not sure I’ll want to be on a boat I’m in charge of.

    Larry – indeed, but they need to be able to run and suffer on no sleep as well.

    Scruff – It was typed a bit tongue in cheek and I’ll just see how things start to progress to see if there is even a glimmer of achieving the timescale. Will look up the Scottish Islands event. Yeah, the event would be brutal as a pair, but that’s the bit which interests me.

    Thanks for the info guys. – I was aware of the awesome Hare / Hill result and can’t imagine ever being able to get near their time / placing. I would consider a finish and win on the first attempt. Just need to learn to sail / navigate at sea, recruit a team mate who doesn’t mind running aground and find a boat. – Nothing which can’t be sorted in…[Read more]

    Larry – I want to do it as a pair in 2021.

    Hi Vader – So you can sail and run ? Do you have much sailing experience or completed other multi day running / adventure events ?

  • marcus replied to the topic 3 peaks yacht race in the forum Chat Forum 3 weeks ago

    Larry – As part of the sailing crew and / or runner ? Given you did it twice, I assume you consider it a good event ?

    Anyone done it as a competitor or support ?

  • Cheers Guys. The antivirus system running on the machine is Avast, so I’lld started uninstalling Symantec antivirus before some of your responses – That had some massive numbers next to it. After a restart and with Office 365 a a few other things open, the CPU seems to now be at 10%. Showing 61% physical memory used.

    Ram is 8.00GB

  • First things first – I’m not computer literate.
    My desk top I use for work has just got slower and slower over the last couple of months, or so. I’ve pressed a few buttons and opened up the ‘Resource Monitor’ tab in 1 of the menus which is indicating I’m using 100% CPU usage and 92% Used Physical memory, including 63 hard faults / sec. – I assume…[Read more]

    The ladders look like temporary Steeplejack ones, so it looks like someone has unfortunately taken advantage of them for a little adventure. I’ll be interested to know if the rescue team involved people from a steeplejack firm ? – It does seem odd that someone didn’t just climb up, clip a harness around him an lower him down.
