Down the beach for the race muster. Unfortunately this meant we were waiting in our trunks for the start of the race, but without a camera. So no shots of the race…unbelievable. But you can see the official ones here. Ann came fifth in her age group, but we have no idea of the rest of our results. 3.4k across the Copacanbana bay. The sea was flat, with just a little swell at the end. I just cruised the whole race. We got in last to avoid the thrashing and then we all spent the race passing people with our steady state smooth crawl. SLSC rocks.
Then back to Nando’s for the post race party. The ape unfortunately succumbed the combination of tropical sun, caipirinhas, pork and beans and retired early. Before I had met many of Nando’s buddies. A great day.
