ROTTNEST CHANNEL SWIM

We had some North Coasters compete in the Rottnest Channel Swim on Saturday and I have received some results back:

Rahul was part of a Duo with Paul (not a NCTC member sadly), team name ‘Ageless’.  They placed 3rd overall duo in the Elite Champions.
Their time of 4 hours and 22 minutes 22 seconds, and was only 51 seconds behind 1st place.
The duo featured the oldest and youngest swimmers in the elite portion of the challenge.  WELL DONE RAHUL.

BIG CONGRATULATIONS to our Solo Swimmers  Melanie Deverell(Hill) and Alison Ratcliffe.

Our very own Captain and Tenile (AKA David and Michelle Martin) also completed as a 4 with Martin Flaig and Greg Johnson.

Kate Hall also competed as a 4, congratulations for her team coming in 13th for their category.

WELL DONE.

KALAMUNDA 100

Congratulations also go to the North Coasters who completed the Kalamunda 100. It was an epic race and one really tough ride.  Who said Perth didn’t have hills!!!!

Well done to Alison Thrum, Vee King, Fiona Laird, Tracey Bartlett, Sue Robertson and Mike Parotte for completing the entire 100km up and down some savage hills.

BRING ON THAT DAM CHALLENGE!!!!
