Otillo Cannes 2019

SHORT REPORT
5:03:09 – 17th Male Pair, 24th Overall
~ 7.2k swim, 30k run

LONG REPORT
IMG_2750At the briefing we were again told that the course had to be changed due to the water quality in front a Cannes as a result of a burst sewage pipe. This meant we would do two loops of the islands and then to the jungle loop. This was still a good course and the only bit we were disappointed was removed was the hilly section above Cannes. It also meant that a fair chunk of swimming would be removed which wasn’t great for us. The overall distance though was roughly the same. We were assured it would be quite a race as the winds will pick up. The cut off before the long crossing back to the mainland was in place because they “didn’t want pairs taking 2 hours to get across”.

~ 3k swim, 12k run

LONG REPORT
We got absolutely soaked walking to the briefing in complete contrast to last year. It looked like tough conditions with rough seas similarly contrasting with last years mill pond. On top of this we we told at the briefing that the course would have to be amended due to a burst sewage pipe resulting in the water quality along the sea front by Cannes not being good enough to have us all race through there.

I decided to extend my stay and help out looking after my other nephew as my sister was living at the hospital with Isaiah. With virtually no training done I decided to defer my marathon place.
