WOW, what a great Aquathlon to end the series.  The Handicap race was very exciting, especially for me!!!  See our Facebook page for Paul’s race report.  The winner of the series, will be announced at our presentation afternoon at the end of the season, as well as the prize draw for the Race wheels donated by Bikeforce Joondalup.  Thanks to David Martin and Paul Heyes who organised every race, to all the volunteers, BBQ chefs (Emma Bott) and a special thanks to the Sorrento Surf Club who provided all the water safety throughout the season.  Without them, the series could not exist.
