FIRST FULL RACE 2014
Sunday’s race saw the club circuit back in full swing and the race did not disappoint. The hard work of many members is starting to pay dividends, with several PBs and new benchmarks set.
Richard Pearson was in typically fast form, with Daniel Stein hot on his heels. Only 53 seconds separated them. Aimee Sutton was the fastest female in a hot time of 1:08:28. The hot weather did nothing to slow other members down. Lee Varney, Vicki Tillott, Anne Grundy and Reuben van Wyngaardt all posted times that were PBs, or very close to PB. A warm welcome back to Debra Tennant who put in a great race after time away with a persistent injury.
Jai Lyons brought the short course home in a winning time of 0:38:02, with Matthew Marsden and Timothy Martin not far behind. Joanne Fergusson was the fastest female. Good to see so many juniors racing over the short course.

First Race for 2014
Our first race for the year saw 87 members tackle the Run-Swim-Run, whilst rain threatened fantastic conditions made for some good racing & some interesting duels with the bike out of the equation. Full race results are available on the web site.
We are back to our normal format for the next race on the 19th January, please remember to be ready for a 6:30am start as the roads & jetty area is still likely to be quite busy.
