Each Summer around August the club organises this fun adventure race for dinghy sailors and canoeists/kayakers in the Sound of Kerrera, incorporating three short hill runs – suitable for both Juniors and Adults.
Members and non-members welcome! Competition is healthy but there are prizes for participating, and for suitable categories on the day.
Non-members: £5 temporary membership per competitor.
Details can change on the day to suit conditions, but please have a look at the instructions below for a past event as an indication of how it runs.
