Pre-race routine:

None. Had been registered for the DU until about 5 mins before we had to leave for the boat. Helped my daughter into her wetsuit and tried to calm my wife before the swim. I was one of the last ones in the water, and the horm went just before we got to the line!
  • 15m 34s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 05s / 100 meters

Slightly slow start due to the number of swimmers ahead of me. Did not push at all for the swim, just nice easy pace. Very happy.
What would you do differently?:

Jump off the boat earlier.

Really a must-do event. Unique start with the boat jump-off. beautiful ride. run course is bad though, hilly, not scenic, al most no shade and no breeze.
