2021 Team List
( As of Feb 28th)
We are planning for the race to go ahead this year, and working on that basis.
All the usual race planning is going on and we are in touch with the various ports and local authorities, who are all very positive.
All teams planning to come are encouraged to get their entries in asap to help us plan ahead, with a 100% money back guarantee, or a place in the 2022 race, should Covid restrictions stop us racing.
“Inaction in the face of fleeting opportunity is a crime.”
(From 'Where Men and Mountains Meet')
We will amend this list as new entries are confirmed, and based on the pattern of entries in previous years expect to see at least 15-20 boats in Barmouth for the race start.
