Good Friday Handicap Results

Dear Athletes

Our biggest ever turn-out this morning at Cottesloe Beach with 52 swimmers completing our 1.9km Good Friday Handicap Swim. Conditions were excellent and great preparation for those doing the Half Ironman in 3 weeks time. It was great to see so much friendly rivalry down there and TEAM spirit, and I'd like to thank all of you who brought some of the new faces down to the beach for a swim - it was a great morning!

Whilst I both mapped the course on Google Maps with the GPS tool and also walked the course yesterday with a GPS as well, my overall feeling was that the course was slightly short and I'd guestimate that this was in the region of 40 to 50m (so ~ 30" to 70" depending upon your swim speed). Nevertheless, it was a great opportunity to see how well everyone is going relative to the others within the group, so well done!

Here are the links to the results (same results - different presentation):

Congratulations to Michelle Wettinger who was first across the line (overall) and to Sylvain Guillame who was the first male across the line (5th overall). Special mention to Dan Fogarty who smoked the course in 25'40" to post the fastest time on the day and to Sally Scafidi who was the fastest lady on the day in a superb 25'56" finish time. Well done everyone!
