By peter | August 18, 2009 | Comments Off on No More Time Trials

With the race season coming to an end, and the final weekends of August busy with the Apple Triathlon and Ironman Canada, it’s time to start thinking of, dare I say it, Fall sports. As a result, there will be no more time trials until next year. Kudos to Pascal Sutherland for achieving the fastest…

Revised Swim Loop Due to Shallow Lake

By peter | August 4, 2009 | Comments Off on Revised Swim Loop Due to Shallow Lake

The lake is very shallow this year, so some swimmers opt to return by swimming the outer loop again instead of swimming the 300m length parallel to the beach. We ask that these swimmers swim INSIDE the loop so as to avoid some nasty collisions. Tangled arms and headaches don’t make for good swimming conditions.…

Take Off Those Wetsuits!

By peter | August 4, 2009 | Comments Off on Take Off Those Wetsuits!

The Apple Triathlon (www.appletriathlon.com) will most likely be a non-wetsuit swim again this year, so now’s a good time to shed that skin and practice your wetsuit-less open water swimming. The Gyro Swim Loop is a perfect practice place as it’s shallow all around the entire loop.

What a success it was!

By peter | July 19, 2009 | Comments Off on What a success it was!

The 61st Annual Across the Lake Swim took place on July 18, and turned out to be the biggest and (we think) best race ever! People signed up in record numbers, and we had everybody racing from total novices (who were reportedly jumping up and down with excitement during the ferry ride to the start…
