    7 sailing running team and three lovely support crew We booked a table in the Last Inn and got down to the serious business of getting to know each other All the last minute organising seemed to be under control as shopping and food were sorted kit organised and bikes transferred The ladies left for a comfortable night ashore and we went aboard to let the newcomers get to know the boat and start to find their sea legs We were the closest boat to the sea on the moorings and acted as sea break for the rest of the armada as the boat took the swell from behind all night We are now in the process of scrutineering the boat and runners as well as doing lots of interviews to camera etc for the interested international paparatzzi An hour or two and the fun begins Part 2 The next 37 hours After a few problems getting off the mooring at barmouth getting the lifeboat to cut the lines was the solution we headed out with Eddie at the wheel At the start we kept away from the mayhem and got a clean start we were off The wind was a nice force four and we were enjoying the sailing for the first few hours as the wind slowly picked up The best entertainment came from watching the camera lady getting soaked sitting at the front of the boat We pushed up the south coast of the Llyn Penninsular in a freshening 5 Ë 6 and watched as a couple of boats went very close to the lee shore to pick up the tidal lift Going through Bardsey sound gave us our first taste of excitement as we came through the narrows the tide race was working well and we dropped into it close under the cliffs with the intention of surfing out unfortunately a wave caught us at the wrong time and the next thing that we knew was when we were 360éd about 50ft from the rocks by a breaking wave The boat was flattened and then shot round through the wind and towards the cliffs Tyd let go of the wheel to let the boat do ités thing and we hung on As we came up through the wind we recovered some control and by shouting a lot and pulling on things we managed to get upright and pointing in the right direction before getting the hell away from the rocks The good news was that we all did the right things and that there was a camera crew within 100ft of us for the whole episode They have said that they owe us a pint or two for the show God only knows what the camera lady on the boat got but she did admit to being terrified After that it all calmed down and we were treated to a school of Dolphins escorting us over Caernarfon bar The runners were off and we dropped anchor

    runners are on Ben Nevis The team have been remarkable and it is a great achievement to finish the race in the challenging conditions The team recieved a fantastic reception when pulled alongside the jetty Almost all the other crews turned out to applaud the crew of able bodied and visually impaired sailors Food and rest are a priority while the runners tackle Ben Nevis Positive Impact makes a tight

    followed by Assent at 01 11 but conditions were terrible Andy Green the skipper of Farthing went up Ben Nevis with co skipper Andy Parkhouse to complete the Tilman Trophy and Willy Ker the 77 year old skipper of Assent set off with Tom White to do the same Unfortunately the weather was too much for Willy who quickly got soaked and tired and unlike the runners wasnét moving quickly enough to keep warm Fortunately Tom White is a doctor and he insisted they turn back to turf Laurence Ormerod and Rob Mulvaney out of their sleeping bags and send them up instead Sadly for Caol Ila our earlier report of them winning the Tilman Trophy was wrong They didn t although they were first boat entered for it to finish Some peculiar new rules have been introduced for the 25th anniversary including completing a crossword during the trip and handicaps for the age of the boat and the age of the runners The upshot is Stormcruiser have won the Tilman trophy mainly as their runners were older When they returned there were only 2 boats left out on the water and the first to appear was Positive Impact who
