Points Races Provisional Programme

We think the programme for Swanny Points Races Season 2021/22 (to be uploaded soon) will be along these lines. Then again we might just change our minds at some point.

Points Races Round 01

Results Round 01

Standings Round 01

Windy and overcast, not the best of mornings to kick off Points Races for the season. Thanks to Cherie for timekeeping and Jamie and Robbie for water safety. No permanent buoys as yet. All swimmers were resplendent in their high visibility vests. Thanks to Victor and the morning patrol for assisting in freeing the ATV when stuck in soft sand.

Results Round 02

Standings Round 02

The sun was out but the permanent buoys weren’t. Jules made his season debut and took line honours in all three events. Thanks to Gail for timekeeping the Long Swim before doing the Run Swim Run. Thanks to Robbie, Tilly and Sasha for water safety and then doing the Long Run. As we were packing up the buoys a member of the public reported concerns about a young child further north on the beach, so Amanda led the search, successful location and welfare check.

Points Races Round 03

Results Round 03

Standings Round 03

Another pleasant morning for Points Races. We used the small red buoys so as not to get into trouble for borrowing the Nipper equipment without permission. Thanks to Brodie and Phil for timekeeping, Annie, Luke, Sharpe and Jack for water safety. Proficiency joined in for the Run Swim Run, so the field was split into Women and Men.

Some queries:

Long Swim: Who is Sharon and who is Charlie or Charlotte?

Run Swim Run: Who is the slower Rob and who is Nolan?
Kate Nelligan, Ben Leonard and Rob Lavis, do you remember your time or where you finished?

Long Run: Who is Charlie? Is this the same person who did the Long Swim?

Points Races Round 04

Results Round 04

Standings Round 04

Nippers are back but the Permanent Buoys are not. Later start once the beach cleared. Competitors were canvased on an 8.00 am or 10.30 am start going forward. With beaches between Port and North Cottesloe closed following a marine creature incident yesterday, the buoys were set closer to shore. Thanks to David Williams and the IRB crew for water safety, Elliott, Amanda, Ben and Briggy for timekeeping.
