After the choppy conditions of last 2 years athletes were greeted with perfect swimming conditions with flat calm seas. The winds on the other hand did not disappoint with a stiff north westerly shifting to south west and strengthening making tough conditions on the bike especially on the return to transition .

In the short course   it was Magnus Michelson with a consistent performance holding off local Barracuda Brett Franklin , who has the fastest bike time of the day , by just over a minute with Brendan Cullen in third.In the women the winner was  local athlete Kara Landells , 2 minutes ahead of Alice Bacquie with Bernadette Spinks in third.

In the long course Reuben Kuah was first out of the water but was soon passed on the bike leg by Chris Scammell and Dennis Neal .

Bass Coast Summer Series 2016-2017

The Bass Coast Summer Series commences this Sunday 8th January with the Dune2Dune Triathlons at Cape Paterson  with the next race being the Twilight Triathlon at Inverloch on the 25th February . It’s looking like ideal racing conditions this Sunday with warm morning temperatures light winds and minimal swell and we’ll be all wrapped ahead of the change .

Entries for both races are open and available via the following page http://www.basscoasttri.com/races/ . For those who have raced before there is a likely change in the bike course with us turning right out of transition rather than left and the turnaround being further along on the coast road rather than within the RACV driveway ( all will be confirmed at race briefing) . Online entries for the Dune2Dune will close Friday so get your entry in to avoid the late fee for on the day entries . Don’t forget the Twilight Triathlon in February with its unique start time on Saturday afternoon .
