Hopefully you are all ship shape and raring to go now that the Tri Season is upon us. The sea is warm and the weather lovely for the races ahead of us!
Please, please, please…we are in desperate need for marshals for the Island Games event on June 28 and the Jersey-Triathlon on July 19. It is politely requested that all club members try and supply a marshal / offer to marshal at least one of the races – without your support these races are made much more difficult so please reply with a preferred race (or whether you can cover both) and contact details of a marshal.

Team Oscar – Media Shoot
We are working with 3D and Team Oscar (this year’s charity) to prepare a media shoot for the triathlon on July 19. There is a snazzy promotional media / photo shoot on Thursday 21 May – is there anyone from the Club who could attend? This is an opportunity to be famous (locally, for a limited period of time). Simply turn up if you are free to support this worthy charity and please let me know if you are attending – it would be good to get some club representation if you are out and about training at lunch time stop along to be part of the action.
