Jerome is no longer a rookie, having taken part in the 2016 3PYR where, despite destroying our engine and running aground in the Menai Straights for four hours, we managed to come 7th. This year we are hoping to deliver a sailing performance that is as strong as our rowing. When not on the race I am the MD of Go Ape, where we encourage everyone to live life adventurously! What could be better than the 3PYR?
Tristram Mayhew - Crew/Runner
A lifetime spent mucking about in boats and dreaming of adventures far over the horizon. Racing doesn’t usually float my boat but the 3PYR is an itch that needs to be scratched.
