  • I watched the Long Course Weekend on C4 at the weekend and would love to be heading back to Tenby. Fantastic place.

    Good luck to those racing on Sunday. Try to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

    Andyb99, MrsB, Beau and Baxter You might remember i was in for this race, i roped a mate into it but then i had to pull out due mainly to work commitments but also injury...anyway my mate is still racing so we're heading to tenby for a week tomorrow. Rally looking forward to cheering you all on....if i see any pirates i'll come and say hello. staying on Kiln park for the week ina caravan so i'll see yer in the mash and barrel!!! 

     

  • looks like the wind is going to pick up for the weekend

  • I'm also someone who pulled out early due to injury. I had accommodation booked so heading down for a holiday anyway and will be marshalling. Hope everyone has a fabulous day, and the race result they want. And a big shout for Seren who would have mentored me had my foot not refused to play. This will be the year for you image xx

     

  • Best of luck to everyone racing, wish I could be there to cheer you on.  If all goes well I'll be there racing next year!

     

  • Just did my last open water swim, then took my 2 kids for their first ever open water swim.  They loved it, great to be in the water with them, the highlight of the last 30 weeks, think I may have something in my eye.

  • Good luck to everyone.  Don't worry about the weather - it's a bit of wind and rain that makes the event what it is. 

  • What an atmosphere you're going to enjoy. Totally unlike anything I've experienced in the UK. The whole town goes on a bender for the day. Good luck for your weekends, folks.

  • just to second what STIL has said, really jealous of you guys, IM Wales blew me away last year, enjoy

     

  • Can't wait to cheer you all on, enjoy the day everyone, see you at the finish line image

  • See you all there maybe! Look out for 466!! I'll be the lost terrified looking one

  • I guess the higher your number th eolder you are.  I knew I was getting too old for this malarky

     

    Anyway, I've given up looking at weather forecasts, everyone seems to differ, and I can't do anything about it anyway, just need to overfill my bags with kit for all seasons, faff on the day, make a decision, and live with it.

  • I think we are in the same catergory M.tri.but they kndly let the ladies go first when allocating numbers image

     

  • And I'll do the gentlemanly thing, and let you start the swim first, women and children first!

    just to second what STIL has said, really jealous of you guys, IM Wales blew me away last year, enjoy

     

    and according to weather forecasts, will blow you away this year - 2011 weather conditions forecast which will make the swim fun again!!  enjoy

    have fun folks

  • BBC site now has it as not raining and 18c, wish they would make their minds up

  • what about the wind though

  • 15mph so not to bad, looks like its getting stronger as you go through the day, so better hurry up and finish image

  • Good luck to all competitors and supporters.

  • Good luck to everyone this weekend.  

  • Windguru.cz probably the best for sea state & wind anywhere on tinterweb has a much revised forecast for Tenby in the last 24 hours.  I'll say no more than that so as to not tempt fate.

  • I've just had a look. I like that one, we'll have that one please. 

  • so if we don't get it now its all RV's faultimage

  • Guys, it's not Wales unless its raining/snowing or sleeting horizontally, it's all good character building stuff and don't forget, skin is waterproof and works better than that overpriced GoreTex.

  • I still like that weather report whatever you say about Gore Tex.
