Viking Race 2006

This years Viking Race took place in Fife, Scotland between the 10th & 14th Sept.

The weather was very uncooperative with constant light s - se winds. This meant that the only usable hill was East Lomond instead of the much preferred Bishop Hill. They also lost 1.5 days to rain and had a late start on 1 day due to mist on the hill.
