Five in a row for my team. One of my surf clubs long events. Our swimmer came out first and passed to the ski paddler who was overtaken as one of the other teams had a faster ski paddler.
Unfortunately for them while he was ahead by 20 metres of our paddler he washed onto the rocks around Barrenjoey Head. Such is life. We took advantage and our ski paddler probably gave me about 3 mins head start which I kept through my huge run. All of 1.9ks and 9:09. It was actually very hard work on the sand this morning as we had no hard sand to run on with the tide full.
Passed to the board paddler who was still about 3 mins ahead and he finished the team off with a win. Five in a row. Another pair of sun glasses for us. I took a pair of Oakleys this time. Nice!
The team whose paddler washed up was nearly DQ'd from the start when the notorious Tim Prowse(known to Miners & Tom31 for different reasons) started with the solo swimmers instead of the teams, so the ski paddler had to wait on the beach for 8 mins. Also they lost the spot and came 2nd. Finished off with a BBQ and perve on the back lawn.
Back next year for hopefully another win.
