Very strong southerly winds made it very difficult for the 62 starters this evening. The highlight was the number of very young pre-school age children, who participated with their parents. It is delightful the way they sprint the last 50 metres and all know the ropes by collecting their place number and move directly to the recorder.
We lost a long time regular in Louise Cox, who is moving to Sydney and gained a former regular in Victoria Fleming, who returned after a long illness.
We welcomed Alex Dodds from London. He will be moving to Sydney with another new starter in Katie Richards. We also welcomed Phil Turner and Jen Newman. A special welcome to Olga and Vlad Konovalov, who recently moved to Mossy Point and are enthusiastic about participating in the event.Personal best times were very hard to come by in this evening’s conditions. Nevertheless, Julien Dunne in the 2 kilometres and Phil Timms in the 3.5 kilometres were the big improvers.
