Thanks to everyone for an excellent week in, almost sunny, Lanzarote. Great to catch up with familiar faces and to meet some new ones. I thoroughly enjoyed the company and was very appreciative of the support both on and off the course.
Saturday was mostly enjoyable, apart from the usual grumpy hour on the run, and much improved by the level of support always engendered by the pirates with a special mention for COLT who also seemed to have a large supporting group that also gave very vocal support to the pirates.
Overall performance was a bit slower than I hoped for, not helped by some truely lesiurely transitions, but probably reflected how difficult I found the wind on the bike. Although I had one of the slower pirate swims it is always a relief to get out of the water safely and I enjoyed this one more than most.
So, thanks again to all the pirates, competing and supporting who made this such a good week.
