I'm sure Marilyn just shows the good shots 'cause my 2 first official runs(follies) aren't in her photostream...not yet anyway :oops:
There was plenty of swims,no real injuries that i heard of,on this challenging yet safe race for all ages.
It was really fun and we lucked out with the weather too.

There actually wasn't as many swims as I remember in the past but it was a challenging course especially that middle section. I'm sure you'll swim less next year Jordi. :oops:

I remember my first Gull race I swam right after the first gate.

Any one who's interested in checking out your times it was a big job but I posted all the results on the Rapid site. Here's the link.

Yeah, gates 8,9, and 10!
I thought there would be more red in that section.I think out of 9 or 10 practice runs i only made it through those gates once,cleanly.
It was my first 2 runs in the Masters Class on Sat. where i blew it both times, before and just after the kissing bridge.My excuse was exhaustion and simply trying too hard.Both runs-DNF!!
Next day i settled down,only did 1 practice run in the 'morn, then did 2 pretty good runs in the more competitive Men's Class.
Three faults 1st run(gate 2,gate 10,gate 11.)raw time 3:33.
Four faults 2nd run(gate 3,gates 8,9,10.)raw time 3:34.
It was pretty fun running gates, i must say.
Thanks for posting the results.
Syotw kneeol!
