Rocco at the moment I have no idea ..Ive not been before so I dont know the layout of the place .. I have no doubt we will be in pirate kit for the majority of the weekend and will be there from the Friday
If I get chance to check out a suitable spot and update the thread I will do otherwise hover around the swim start and look out !!

Meldy will probably be on the corner of road where the athletes turn right to go towards transition by the white hotel. That's a good spot to be in.

I watched the Long Course Weekend on C4 at the weekend and would love to be heading back to Tenby. Fantastic place.

Good luck to those racing on Sunday. Try to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

looks like the wind is going to pick up for the weekend

I'm also someone who pulled out early due to injury. I had accommodation booked so heading down for a holiday anyway and will be marshalling. Hope everyone has a fabulous day, and the race result they want. And a big shout for Seren who would have mentored me had my foot not refused to play. This will be the year for you xx

Best of luck to everyone racing, wish I could be there to cheer you on.  If all goes well I'll be there racing next year!

Just did my last open water swim, then took my 2 kids for their first ever open water swim.  They loved it, great to be in the water with them, the highlight of the last 30 weeks, think I may have something in my eye.

Good luck to everyone.  Don't worry about the weather - it's a bit of wind and rain that makes the event what it is.

What an atmosphere you're going to enjoy. Totally unlike anything I've experienced in the UK. The whole town goes on a bender for the day. Good luck for your weekends, folks.

I guess the higher your number th eolder you are.  I knew I was getting too old for this malarky

 

Anyway, I've given up looking at weather forecasts, everyone seems to differ, and I can't do anything about it anyway, just need to overfill my bags with kit for all seasons, faff on the day, make a decision, and live with it.

I think we are in the same catergory M.tri.but they kndly let the ladies go first when allocating numbers

And I'll do the gentlemanly thing, and let you start the swim first, women and children first!
