A one day event

25th September 2021

Hero Challenge Three 2020 will be based in the Taunton area and will be predominantly aimed at novice and intermediate crews, although there will be a master’s class for the more experienced competitors.

The event will be made up of a mixture of Tests and Regularities designed to be enjoyable for all levels of experience, with navigation kept simple.  Crews will be supplied with an easy to read Routebook with no plotting required.  This should be a fun, competitive day out, traversing the quieter roads of the beautiful Somerset & Devon countryside.
