The three peaks yacht race is classed as one of the top ten adventure (endurance) races in the world, this year the team were competing against a number of professional sailors including Dee Caffari and Pip Hare. Half of this years competitors also attempted the even more challenging Tilman version of the race which involves all of the team summiting at least one of the mountains. The Sea Camels team were proud to achieve second place in the Tilman race and were awarded The Bodlyn Cup, further the team achieved a very creditable 8th place over all, which was particularly impressive given that they had the slowest runners out of all the teams but this did mean that they achieved the Kamminga Kloggs award!
Children at the Acorns Children’s Hospice kindly made the Sea Camels flags to decorate their yacht, with the brilliant decorations from the children, the Sea Camels won best dressed yacht and were awarded the British Waterways Bowl.
The Sea Camels proudly won the Wrinkles Trophy for having the oldest combined team age, surely showing the younger teams a thing or two by winning so many awards!
