Weekly Update 30 July 2021

Hi Everyone,

Firstly massive congratulations to Dan and Rebecca for coming fifth and second overall at the Outlaw full distance triathlon last weekend! After some slight debate we think Dan missed the Club record by a minute or so, the stewards enquiry acknowledged that the Outlaw transition is relatively long compared to IM Copenhagen, but that’s the second sub nine hour full distance result in the Club’s history which is no mean feat.

While we are talking friendly competition, please note that the Summer Club relays are taking place on Saturday 21 August so hold the date. The venue is Dorchester Sailing Club for the swim and transition, with teams organised so that in theory they should all produce a similar overall time. We will also be holding a social picnic/ BBQ afterwards so that we can finally catch up in person! Sign up is open here.

A friendly reminder from your Club captains that when you complete the Club champs races you need to enter your results for them to count; and with this year being more open than ever before, there are still races available to enter! For more info, see here.

Finally, plenty of spaces for the OW swim tomorrow morning … go on, you know you want to!

Any questions, as ever just ping me.
