Hello, this is sent to all Saturday swimmers. Please read this post and follow the rules:

http://www.windrushtri.co.uk/forum/topics/windrush-saturday-swimming-official-complaints

Therefore it is IMPERATIVE that you follow these two rules for Saturday swimming:

a) You must ONLY swim in the ONE LANE allocated to us from 09:45-10:45.

b) You must ONLY wear the YELLOW WINDRUSH CAP. If you don't have a cap you need to buy one before you swim at this session. Neil the kit coordinator will be selling them at swimming sessions. No Windrush cap, no swim.

thank you Paul

it was classic Lanzarote: windy on the bike and hot on the run. They allowed over 2400 athletes to enter this year and with such a big field the swim and first half of the bike was pretty hectic.V happy with getting under 13 hours given I had to run-walk the marathon. Came in top 25% of my age group. I'll do a gentle recovery ride with JC this weekend and then back to training next week!
