IN just 10 days Port Moresby harbour is set to host the Akzo Nobel 3 Peaks Race.
Commencing from the Royal Papua Yacht Club (RPYC) on the 20th October 2018 skippers, crew and athletes will sail, race, swim and run in Fairfax Harbour, Manubada and Lolorua and Burns Peak.
Club Commodore Kilroy Genia said that every year the 3 Peaks gains in popularity and excitement.
The combination of location and challenging course involving several disciplines brings the competitors, volunteers and the community together in a fun day.
“This year will be even more colourful with the 2019 Pacific Games RPYC cadets joining the race aboard their Hobie 16’s.
The fleet races from inside Fairfax Harbour, stopping at Manubada Island and Lolorua Island.
This is where runners swim ashore and race to the top of each island before returning to their boats which then race on.
The final peak is a grueling run up Burns Peak before returning to the Yacht Club for a rousing welcome at the finish line”.
There are great prizes on offer for fastest boats, fastest runners and give aways for everyone who enters.
Aaron Batts, General Manger is overwhelmed with the support of sponsors including AkzoNobel, Skel Rice and BNG Trading and many other small businesses.
“Information on the event is available at http://www.rpyc.com.pg/clubs/sailing-division/ and we encourage all athletes, and sailors to get involved in what is great day of team work and camaraderie.
