  • 02m 07s / 100 yards

The swells and chop were up. A few people didn't make it off the beach for the 2.4, it was worse for the 1.2. The left to right current was stronger than normal.

Here are the results.
What would you do differently?:

I should have aimed quite a bit to the left off the beach.

I needed Glide in front of my shoulders since I didn't wear a shirt with sleeves.

Event comments:

This race has a very fun vibe, and is far more memorable than just the time in the water.
