Cloud, skippered by Tristan Stewart, won the Aberdeen Boat Club's Four Peaks race in 19 hours and 17 minutes yesterday. The race, which combines sailing and running, was one of the fastest in years as northeasterly winds aided the 15 yachts in dry but cold conditions. Tamandu, skippered by Christopher Lavender, won the shorter Division B course (where just three out of the four peaks are completed). Commodore Barry Hill said the race overall went well. 'It was a very cold weekend, especially with the wind chill,' Hill said. 'The good news was that it was dry. The teams are tired. It was a very exhausting event.'
