Tri-Lakeland and Bassenthwaite Sailing Club welcomed both new and experienced competitors to their friendly open water Triathlon last Saturday. The triathlon took place in an outstanding, picturesque location where the only 'lake' in the Lake District can be found, Bassenthwaite. Another great event enjoyed by all.

Colin Semple (Pictured) is one of our members, he is a Great Britain competitor and an Iron Man Tri-Athlete who has recently returned from an Iron man adventure in Hawaii! Colin took part in this local event along with his daughter Becky Semple also pictured who is a regular user of the centre.

Colin placed 1st male vet 50, and was 11th overall. Becky placed 3rd senior female and was 6th woman to finish in her first ever Triathlon. Well done to both of you!!

Fancy Trying a Tri?...
