AndersSwim13Anderson Inlet turned it on for the start of the Alex Scott Triathlon Series of 2013-14 . With a slack high tide and blues skies it was a perfect start to the Barracudas summer season for the Voyage Fitness Anderson Inlet Triathlon .  A record field of 62 starters entered the water . The unusual lack of current and clear water made for one of the fairest swims in recent years . A moderate Easterly breeze made for a fast outward bike leg to Cape Paterson , with Barracuda Keith Colomb leading to the turn . DSC_0659

Young Matt Sullivan , who has made big improvements , and Keith slugged out into the headwind back to Inverloch with them both hitting the final transition together . In the end it was Keith Colomb , who was too strong on the run taking out the event in a time of 1:04:53 . A fast finishing Paul Taylor came in second with Matt Sullivan coming in 3rd just ahead of Sam Beveridge.DSC_0732

In the women’s filed it was Barracuda Raeleigh Harris fresh off an age group win at the Shepparton 70.3 who lead the field in despite puncturing on the bike . Her presence in the club will certainly be missed when she leave for Canada in the near future . Coming in 2nd was Paula Charlton with another Barracuda , Michelle Harris , finishing fast for 3rd.
