For a race in it's first year it was fantastic.
The only major issues were;
lack of small buoys between the large turnbuoys (1500m apart)
km markers on the run not accurate in that 2km was too soon probably 1.6km, all were then accurate through to 41km which was probably 400m early making the final run in from 41km 1.6 not 1.2km. The course overall did appear to be an accurate distance.
Change of drink to gatorade without telling anyone
There appeared to be a lack of coke on the run course, I found it only at one aid station 7km from the end. Water and gatorade were always available.
Overall it was an excellent race and I would certainly do it again and recommend it to anyone.

: Andy was just too damn fast!!! Loads of coke by the time I got there, though with how I was feeling I could have done with the powder variety!!! Dec 29th 2009 14:57
