With just over a week to go before the Three Peaks Yacht Race, we have been busy preparing Rho for the race.
Final preparations included the fitting of the rowing rig; the Three Peaks Yacht Race allows permits the use of rowing, which is helpful during periods of calm or when trying to punch through adverse tides- but does provide an interesting engineering problem when designing and building a rig to row a 38 foot yacht.
Nick and Paul spent Bank Holiday Monday fitting and testing the new rigs, which are demonstrated by Paul in the attached clip.
The delivery trip begins on Sunday 10th June. The race starts at 19.00 on Saturday 16th June.
