The Aca Joe Warm Water Weekend is a highlight for me every year. Paul Ingpen is a good mate and he invited the three of us to join for the weekend on the West Coast for some fun in the sun.
The vibe of the weekend is one of relaxation, family and fun. This was Luke’s first outing at a tiny age of 3 weeks!! He absolutely enjoyed all the attention.
Although all the big names are out in full force, the word race is very rarely stated. It is a great opportunity to test form and put in some good hours before the busy tri season gets undergo.
This year saw the addition of a mountain bike triathlon. The two events are:
2km swim ; 70km TT ; 13km beach run
3km swim ; 30km mtb ; 10km beach run
I enjoyed racing both events and went away with 2 wins and a whole lot of precious memories. Big up to Aca Joe and Electricink for making this event possible and exposing so many of us to the beauty the West Coast has to offer.
