E NEWS - 1 JULY 2015

There wasn't a hint of a croc at Darwin Surf Life Saving's Fannie Bay Swim Classic at the weekend. With so many of the fantastic Surf Lifesaving crew out on the water, they wouldn't have dared.

I'm reliably informed it is the safest open water swim around with a ratio of one water safety officer to five competitors!!

It was perfectly timed and a good hit out for many triathletes ahead of Blue Cycles NT Long Course Triathlon which is taking place on Sunday at Lake Bennett (see below).


1.  Ironman France, 3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42.2km run

Nikki Roddie 7th F40-44 11:34:49
