Newsletter Update

For those awaiting the newsletter. 2 quick updates.

For those reading the Peris report, the winners were current club members Iain Ridgway
and Andrea Rowlands. Minor details.

For those reading the 3 Peaks Yacht race reports about success and failure. The quickest running team and king of the mountains for 2011 contained Eryri’s Iain Ridgway, with Martin Beale, breaking the record on the Scafell running section, potentially setting a new Ben Nevis record time. Such runs are down to 70/75 mile weeks, week in week out. Not luck. Again minor news.

Rough with the smooth.
