It’s all for a good cause! SEXWAXSNAPS were delighted to be called in at short notice to cover the inaugural St.Mawe’s Nearwater Triathlon. The lovechild of Tim and Amelia Whitaker who run the the Nearwater “boutique style” B&B in the village, this “sprint’ event not only provided the contestants with a great day’s race but helped raise funds for “Help For Heroes“. All images from this event can be found in full under the Triathlon tab above or by simply clicking here.

As usual, here’s a few shots and some video from the day, which for a first event – and perhaps not coincidentally – ran with military precision.

As you can see, there were some hardcore competitors taking part plus a full blown Army General handing out the prizes!

… are being uploaded, sorted and stamped and will be ready for your delectation and delight asap. We hope to have them available here by the end of this week – if not sooner! What a race, eh? Well done all of you!

This year, there was a fair sized swell and some choppy surf with a strong southerly breeze that had a lot of swimmers struggling to avoid drifting off the first can. For some, the swim proved too much to handle … better luck next time!

Around 150 children between the ages of 7 and 15 took part in the recent Perranporth Youth Challenge Aquathon (formerly Biathlon). These are the triathletes of the future and didn’t they do well?

The sea conditions were such that the swim section was downgraded to a wade for safety considerations!
