Island Lake Triathalon

The Third Annual Island Lake Triathalon was another rousing success. For the third year in a row the race and the prestigious Windsor Cup was won by nephew Scott, the Hingemaster. A mile swim, 26 mile bike, and 5 mile run is the 'official' course. But several variations are available such as the kayak/bike/no run, the sleep in/bake cake/drink coffee, and the popular rescue boat for swimmers/bike to Backwoods Tavern/enjoy Bloody Mary breakfast. Everyone got some exercise and the post event awards ceremony and banquet went on until the wee hours. It was a perfect weekend weatherwise and the festivities on the Windsor Castle, a homemade early sixties vintage houseboat, were a highlight of the weekend.

Bikes ready for the ride across the lake.

Swimmers on their marks.

Water break along the bike route.

Too much fun on the Windsor Castle.

Some kayaks even wound up inverted a few times along the way.......
