Craggy island triathlon

We had a fabulous Sunday for the first craggy island triathlon on Kerrera. Competitors set off by swimming across to the island, then on their bike and round the track. Back at base run over the highest point, past the tearoom and finish at the castle. Below are the bikes waiting for competitors.

Fastest was 1 hr 10 mins. Fastest women was 1 hr 11 mins, this is her running past my control point. All proceeds to Oban Mountain Rescue.

We also had the Cruachan challenge. It had been delayed from June due to bad weather. So in true Argyll style the weather was out in force again! This is the kids being helped across the torrents.

Luckily Katia hadn't yet arrived, she was delayed too. She arrived later the next day, but was nowhere near the storm we had in May.
Following the May storm all our trees along the coast have looked like autumn where the salt spray damaged the leaves.
