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!
