Twilight Triathlon 24 February 2018
Dune2Dune Triathlon

The final day of 2017 saw the wind dropping and cloud clearing for perfect race conditions for the 32GI sponsored Dune2Dune . The remaining swell and full high tide made the setting of a swim course difficult  but once again the Wonthaggi Life Saving Club delivered the good . There was still enough wind around to make the return journey to Cape on the bike a bit of an upwind grind. 29 starters lined up for the long course  with double that number starting the short course. Reuben Kuah was the master of the rough water and lead at the end of the swim with Amanda Wilson and Paul Taylor in hot pursuit and a group of 3 less than 20 seconds behind . Matt Sullivan and Dennis Neal were the big movers on the bike leg and it was Dennis getting past Matt in the second lap to lead in to the final transition posting the quickest bike time for the day of 56:13.  A blitzing run time of 36:29 by Amanda Wilson saw her past all the men with an almost full  minute lead at the finish over Paul Taylor who had passed Matt Sullivan ( 2nd) and Dennis Neal (3rd). Sarah Treloar was second in the women’s field with Adele Garwood in 3rd.

In the short course a blistering bike leg in a time of 26:38 saw Brett Franklin lead in to the final change with half a minute lead over Mack Clarkson . Whilst Mack closed the gap somewhat , Brett held on for the win with Naish Chapman in 3rd. In the women’s filed it was Penny Nevill over Zoe Ferguson with Kara Landels in third .

The Barracudas would like to thank the Wonthaggi Life Saving Club , Coastal Crewzers( transition ) , Wonthaggi Road Runners( marshalling) , race sponsor 32GI and Magnus Michelson , and series sponsor Alex Scott . A special thanks for their effort on the day of Deb Reilly , Jenny Hollins and family and Damien King and family .
