Hi Harry

There are an increasing number of tris in the area (I'm also in Eastbourne and am a BTF official - aka referee) 

Two in Bexhill - Bexhill Lions tri in June (standard and sprint) and Bexhill Tri in August (sprint) - both sea swims

Sussex Triathlon in July - http://www.sussextriathlon.co.uk/ - held at Ashburnham Place near Battle - sprint/standard/middle distance races. lake swim

Bewl Triathlon in August - http://bewltriathlon.co.uk/bewltriathlon/index.html - Bewl reservoir near Wadhurst - sprint & standard. lake swim

Rye Triathlon in July - http://www.ryetriathlon.co.uk/ - actually at  Winchelsea Beach not Rye. sprin & standard races. sea swim

South Coast Tri in July - http://www.fun2tri.co.uk/south_coast/index.htm - Seaford. sprint and standard.  sea swim.  long established event (my 1st tri back in 2003)

Brighton Marina Tri in September - http://www.brightonmarinatriathlon.co.uk/ - obvious location!  sea swim.

Worthing Tri in July - http://www.rawenergypursuits.co.uk/rep-news/latest/worthing-triathlon/ - long established event.  sea swim

there are a few others around "inland" at Crawley, East Grinstead, Ardingly etc

enough info for you there???   

I will be competing in a couple of them and refereeing at others - PM me if you need any more help

Harry - I note from another thread that you're 16.  so I assume you'll be 17 next year which means you can take part in standard distance events, but not longer than that until you're 19.

I'd also suggest that (assuming you aren't already a member) you join Bodyworks Tri Club in the town as they have a very active junior section and you'll get a huge amount of benefit from the club in your training
