Scafell Leg

Some people with more energy than sense decide to have a race to run up the highest peaks of Wales, England and Scotland : Snowdon, Scafell, and Ben Nevis. They add to their difficulties by sailing between in yachts therefore demanding a perfectly balanced team of sailing and athletic ability.


The first yacht crossses the sand bar at high tide and launches its dinghy of runners into the bay.
