Good luck #teamwhistler in the #threepeaks
Well the live online yacht tracker is telling me that Team Whistler have made it onto the water and are drawing small grey circles on the map while they wait for the start, which is roughly half an hour away.
We'd like to wish all those aboard Team Whistler the best of luck with this years Barmouth to Fort William Three Peaks Race. After winning this year's Tasmanian Three Peaks all eyes will be on the Tasmanian team and they'll be sure to provide tough competition to their UK counterparts even though now sailing in unfamiliar territory. Time to show the Poms the navigation prowess of Tasmanians, and that we aren't simply the descendants of lost-at-sea Englishmen.
For more information on the race, including a live yacht tracker see http://www.threepeaksyachtrace.co.uk and for more info on Team Whislter see stateline video here http://www.abc.net.au/news/video/2010/06/11/2925292.htm
Team Whistler progress so far.
