The comment from the race organiser says it all:
"Obviously we try to achieve a fair and equitable outcome in every race we run. However the combination of the northern turning buoy drifting southwards (meaning that the first paddlers paddled the furthest) before being washed in to shore, then being replaced for a period by a water safety craft, before that craft in turn was called on to help struggling paddlers, and finally having all remaining paddlers called directly in meant that virtually no two paddlers paddled exactly the same course."
Well done, Rob!

Mandy had the fastest swim and bike splits in her age group.
The official results show Julie as coming 2nd in F50-54, but she is querying this.
(T2 included in bike split)
Julie's race report: "I had an enjoyable time at this first event for the season with perfect weather conditions.
Just one frustration was swimming off course - the lead swimmer in the 30+ wave headed off-course and the lead group duly followed!
So that may have cost some significant time in recovering to the turnaround buoy."
We won't say who one of the 3 lead swimmers was...
