Get your money's worth for a triathlon in Noumea. Entry fee was about $70. Race pack is backpack, towel and tshirt. Few other random things including an M&Ms cookbook (unfortunately in French). Also pasta party for lunch today and awards dinner on Monday night.

There really needs to be a Tri Cruise set up, Raratonga Tri is on first weekend of May each year.  Would probably work with the number of aging triathletes around now

For almost four years I was on the committee for the Port Vila Triathlon back in the mid to late 90s. Always great times were had. That’s where I met Delly Carr. Been friends ever since. 

I’ll  dig out some old photos in the next few days.

do they still do that ?

if so AA7 the rule I was bought up on was ....... winner shouts !

Total assumption... based on you being pretty much unbeatable locally..

Well this is an international race 😝

They don't post the results until after the awards dinner tomorrow night. But I'm pretty sure I won my category.
