The day started dull and drizzly but soon the sun had transformed the location into a dazzling sunny empire of talent , perspiration and determination. A triatlon in the sea with some interesting undercurrents, which nothing in the pool can prepare you for. Not sure the day trippers who flocked down to the seaside knew what was in store as they arrived at the seafront, still it made those on the bike leg of the event wide awake often wizzing past the cars with marshalls trying to holdback pedestrians at the zebra crossings.
7oaksTri had Catherine Linney (2:23:18.05) showing supreme effort only being beaten into overall second place by a "Team effort" in the Standard Triathlon, and so came 1st in the Ladies, Ben Bridges (2:37:12.90) came in 12th.
In the Sprint Category Nathan Marsh (1:04:29.00 ) came 2nd and Gillian Sanders (1:50:32.85) came 24th
