At 10.41 this morning the runners from Team Aparito Digital Health crossed the finish line to complete the 2016 Three Peaks Yacht Race.

Jo Jackson and Lowrie Morgan ran over the finish line at Corpach Sea Lock hand in hand and into the embrace of their delighted team mates. After a prolonged hug it was time to open the champagne and celebrate a great sporting achievement and when the team Skipper, Pip Hare, was asked what had made a difference she answered without hesitation.

“Teamwork!  We have absolutely been there for each other all the time, all working together as a team. We’d never met or done anything together before, and Lowrie only saw the boat on the Friday before the race, but from the start we’ve worked hard together and it’s been a fantastic experience.”

Lowrie Morgan said, “It’s been fantastic being part of a team. I mainly do individual challenges and events and it’s been nice not being on my own.” Pip Hare gave a hug and said, “You’re not on your own any more!”  Lowrie added, “It’s been a real privilege racing with this team.”

Elin Haf Davies said, “This has been the best and most rewarding thing I’ve done.” A surprised Pip Hare asked, “Really?”  “Yes, it’s been very special.”  (The surprise was because Elin Haf Davies has rowed both the Atlantic and the Pacific.)

When asked if it was good to finish ahead of all the men Hare replied, “It adds a little bit to the enjoyment!”

Jo Jackson added, “I think this race is a good event for women to compete on equal terms. Women can sail equally as well as men and in ultra events often have more endurance. It’s been a great experience for me to be a part of this as the ‘amateur’ on the team.”

After the finish line interviews the team headed off to warm up and change ... but they opened another bottle of champagne first!
