The Scottish Islands Peaks Race starts this Friday at noon. I entered my yacht Sumara in 2012 and came outstandingly last. We were so late the officials had gone home and we had to clock in to a surprised harbour master. Nevertheless we did finish and a lot of the fleet had to retire so we were pretty pleased with ourselves.
This time I am entering with my friend John on his Twister called Brimble. Each yacht has a team of five and we have a cunning plan! Our revolutionary idea which we didn't try last time is not to get lost. I doubt it will work because I find the hills pretty confusing but it is a brave idea and certainly worth a try.
I'll tell you how we got on next week so long as I can find my way back.
