Greg Brock   (Crew/Runner)

Greg has been sailing dinghy’s for many years, when asked about doing the three peaks his response was “Well I’ve mainly done dinghy sailing inland, this shouldn’t be a problem as the sea is just a big lake…right?”

Greg is a very experienced runner, both road and mountain running. His running achievements are extensive and include:

02:55:30 at Manchester Marathon 2017. 23hrs and 18mins for the Bob Graham Round. 42 Lake District peaks, 65 Miles and 28,000ft of Ascent.

Equally at home on land as he is at sea Dave is proficient sailor and runner.

 

Dave has been sailing yachts for over 15 years with many miles under his belt. His joy of running is more recent but he has thrown himself into the sport with enthusiasm.

Having helped his brother Rob crash a number of boats Dave has now decided it’s time to join Rob on the three peaks yacht race.

Rob has been successfully crashing boats since 2001, his most recent bump was on Caernarfon bar in the 2017 Three Peaks Yacht Race, fingers crossed this year will be less eventful.
