The REP Worthing aquathlon 2009

Well it was a very windy evening on Thursday night at the Worthing Sailing club for the annual open water swim and run.
With force 5 winds and waves of about 3ft, it was looking more like a mass game of lemmings than a swim start, but everyone made it in and out ok...

The official race report is here:

and results from Mick are here on Tri247: http://www.tri247.com/event_7200.html

And of course the official race website is RawEnergyPursuits.co.uk with Mick, Nigel and Steve.

Here's a selection of pictures from the evenings antics below, the rest can be found here: http://gallery.sussexsportphotography.com/a.tlx?k=c9wzeof

and there's a time lapse video of the finish line here on youtube:



This is what the windy Sailing club loooked like
The Sea battered into the groynes at high tide

Whlst the safety canoes enjoyed the waves


eventually there was a squooky start as the air horn made some kind of noise


and there were a few fallers at the off...


The king Canute (or Knut) method of sea entry was taken by some

But everyone seemed to enjoy themselves once they made it out of the water:

Family were pleased to see they had survived the washing machine


And then it was along the seafront for a nice evenings 10k


although you don't really want to lose do you...




It was dark by the end..




But eventually the flash worked and the prizes were handed out:





well done everyone ! Now go get your picture to remember such a great evening of fun !
