04/24 & 04/25 Weekend Update: St. Anthonys’ Triathlon.

This weekend is the 27 th Annual St. Anthonys’  Triathlon-  www.satriathlon.com here in St. Petersburg ,Fl.  It is the starting race for North Americas’ Triathlon season, and has served as a qualifier for the Ironman Triathlon World Championship. Last year competitors from 48 states and 18 countries were registered to compete, and there is a limit of 4,000 entries and 150 Relay Teams this year! I heard through the grapevine something around 30 waves of swimmers in the water.

Yes, you guessed it. Jeff and I will be there( as well as KayakKev & Peggy) along with about 40 other kayakers from around the Tampa Bay area. We will be there as Rescue Support for the swimmers, lifeguards, and jetskis/boats. Jeff and I have to attend a 1 hour meeting on 04/24(Sat.)  at Bill Jacksons Outdoor Shop, along with all the other kayak support members. Then on 04/25(Sun.) all kayak support members report to The Pier in St. Petersburg for the launch and 4-5 hour sit in The Bay, as we keep our eyes on up to 4,000 swimmers as they pass by on their way to hop on a bike for a nice ride and then to do some RUNNING!!!

We will follow up with a posting on Monday once our jobby-job be done!
