@ Gylly Beach – Who ever stays in the longest gets the prize.
THERES ONLY ONE RULE – NO WETSUITS!
Just a quick note: for the surf life saving pool nationals in Cardiff on March 26th Nippers and 27th Youth you need to book early to secure close accomadation. See the desk this week and speak to Mrs Christophers. All nippers who passed the 2 length swim are able to attend (see Allan or Melissa if you are unsure).
Also, the AGM Provisional date is 29th November 7:30PM at Falmouth Beach Hotel.
Sunday 13th March 2011 at 10.30am.
A two lap route starting and finishing at the Penventon Park Hotel. The course, generally flat, initially follows an out and back one mile section before turning north onto a two lap circular route along the spectacular north coast and back through the historic mining district of Pool. Drink stations are provided at 3 mile intervals.
We have booked Truro School Pool on the 9th October, 5pm. Allan and Melissa will be holding a ‘how to coach’ workshop for all club coaches, 1 week before everyone comes back to the pool. It would be great if you could attend.
Contact Allan for more info.
2010 will see the twenty seventh running of the Cornish marathon. Originally it started out from Saltash and wound its way down the A38 and A390 to Lostwithiel. Current traffic conditions on one of the busiest roads in Cornwall make that unimaginable. Relocating to Rilla Mill, taking in much of the present route, it presented competitors with an immediate steep start just to get out of the valley. Nowadays it starts from Millenium House in Pensilva, where its relatively flat gradient makes for a much gentler start, however it is most definitely the 25 miles after that, particularly the climb to Foredown between miles 24 and 25, which most people will remember!
A team of 16 members from Gylly took part in the final Hayle aquathlon of the year. We had some fantastic results: Allan Reid came first Senior Male, winning the overall race as well. Frazer Anthony-Johns finished 3rd Senior Male. We also had a victory in the Junior Male and Female catergories with Felix Coates (second overall) and Izzy Steele (first female home). The team of Cortney-Lee Reid and John Posnett stormed to victory and Gary Bullen won the Veteron Male catergory. Well done all! Full results here… Hayle Aquathon 3 2010 results
