The Argo Re Summer Series kicked off for 2014 on 15 May 2014 in breezy but otherwise good conditions.
New season, same outcome–with a twist! It wasn’t unusual to see the name Pilgrim as race winner. However, on this occasion it was Pilgrim Senior, Ian, who was first home. (In the past his kids have attended and showed their prowess.) It couldn’t happen to a more deserving person, because Ian has volunteered his time as race director for these super sprints numerous times in recent years. Kim McIvor–more used to long distance events–came home in second place. Relative newcomer Ben Lau finished strongly in third place.
Alan Gilbertson acted as race director, while Janet Harrison–again–very kindly acted as safety marshal, Thanks, Janet–and to all the athletes who pitched in to help with set up and take down.
All in all a good start to the season!
