We sent a small number of our youth section (aged 13-18) to compete at the ironman event at Croyde on 19 June 2010, which was part of the Oceanfest weekend. This gruelling event consisted of three ironman races – each race including a swim, paddleboard and ski in a different order each time.  All four of those who took part finished in the top ten in their age group.  We also sent six youths to compete in the ski race the next day and, again, all of those participating finished in the top ten.  Team Manager Alan Roberts said “This was a solid performance where our training really did pay off, with good performances from all those who participated.”
