    The swim lanes ran late (second year running) becuase they only allow for a 10 minute swim slot per lane, even for the breast strokers who take 20 minutes. Bike was okay and as always pancake flat, run was a challeneg on the beach. The reuslts were inconsistent and flat out wrong giving splits not adding up to event time for a number of competitors. My goggles went missing in transition even tho they were by bike, and when it came to removing the bike from transition there was no security. Therefore a bit scary for a 3k bike that could go walkies!

    For my first tri this was amazing and on my door step. the swin phase ran a little late but everyone was in good sprirt in the changing room. the transititon was simple straight outside. the cycle was very good flat and straight most of the way.some of the roads have seen better days but it didn't matter it passed so quickly and the run was on sand which i awlays find nice with a scenic tour round a golf course. can't wait to do my next one. Defo a PB Sprint course
