WEEKLY UPDATE

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

Phew, what a week.  So much happened on the weekend…

Jetty to Jetty swim, and Rahul absolutely smashed the 750m swim with a new course record.  This young man has such an amazing future.  Well done to all the North Coasters that competed in the event.

Some of our Shoalwater Classic competitors, well done guys and gals.

Well done also to all the ladies that competed in the Women’s Triathlon at Hillary’s.  It was such a wonderful event and I think everyone had a great day.  Thank you must also go to the band of volunteers with a special mention to Rosa Illingworth who does such an amazing job organising the North Coast Volunteers and we appreciate her great efforts.  And those bacon and egg burgers were YUMMY!!!

A big shout out to Kim Tyler-Lees.  If you don’t know, Kim was down at the Hillary’s event on the Saturday and Sunday, selling race belts and bike plug ends, raising money for our Junior triathletes. Kim makes the race belts herself, and proceeds go to help our juniors attend interstate events.  Race belts are for sale for $15 each, or if you buy them from me, they are only $14.99…   I am not going to tell you what Kim says to my price, but those that know Kim know exactly!!!!

It was the last week for the junior triathlete 5 week training block, and from all accounts, it was a great success.  Thank you to Janine, Rhian and Alex.
