Timing of the Three Peaks Yacht Race
If organising an individual attempt, the same timing should be applied as to the
National Three Peaks Challenge. The longer days and more sunlight the better, but
bear in mind that the Institute of Fundraising asks participants to abide by the

- Avoid weekends
- Avoid the period from late June to mid-July
- Limit events to 200 participants
If participating in the PowerBar Three Peaks Yacht Race, be aware that they generally
take place at the end of June.
