Sunday, April 03, 2011 - Gateway to the Bay Triathlon
This was another well-staged event from Onurmark Productions. The swim was an interesting point-to-point course in the bay. The athletes were ferried from Kemah (home of the famed and highly profitable Boardwalk) out into the bay on the Colonel, a paddlewheel vessel hailing from Galveston.
It was a multi-wave start with the pros going first. And yes, there was even one guy using a snorkel. Im surprised the USAT rules would permit it, but there you have it.
The day was a bit humid, but almost everybody was still doing well at mile 5 of the run course, even after tackling the Kemah Bridge.
