WET, WET, WET: Competitors get underway in the Charlestown Triathlon

CHARLESTOWN Regatta Week kicked off with a splash, a ride and a run as they held their annual fun triathlon.

The triathlon is the first event of the week’s celebrations and once again it was a good turnout to see the popular event get underway.

This year saw a change to the usual route as competitors now had to navigate the coastal path out towards Carlyon Bay on the run and also headed out to Sea Road on the cycle.

It led for some great racing with competitors cheered on by the support which came out on Saturday morning despite the weather forecast.

The first over the line was the fastest team as James Cutlan crossed the line for the Mad Hatters team, which also included Derren Blewett (swim) and John Yelland (cycle) in 25 minutes and two seconds.

A further minute passed before the first individual completed the course and it was another James who crossed the line, this time James Illiffe in 26.34.

The first youth team completed the top three as Nile Blackbeard, Jack Barrett and Huey Campbell, team NEF finished in third.

The first lady home for the second year in a row was Kathy Clarke, while Finlay Hudson was the first youth male and Danielle Rawson the first youth female.
