I “raced” Yeppoon that year and remember looking wistfully at some people cutting across the grass as I trudged around the path like a sucker. Could have been the great Tiger himself I was watching.
I also “raced” Port MAC the year that school teacher guy (Dave someone?) who was doing his 20th consecutive port or something like that found it within himself to cover part of the run splits faster than the pros when he went out on the last lap and looked like not making cut off.
Maybe it’s me that causes such behaviour.
