Location: St. Kilda Beach, Melbourne
Theme: Calm before the Storm
Written by Steve Munatones
At 5:20 am with sunrise still 2 hours to away, Mark Warkentin and the coaching staff took an early-morning stroll on the pier near the race finish to check out the conditions. The verdict: calm with a very, very slight offshore breeze and no surface chop. Water temperature is listed as 66.2ºF (19ºC). The women will be heading to the ocean to check-in and pick up their transponders at 8 am, while the men will be heading over later.
Today, with the Formula One Grand Prix, the International Airshow and the 5K race going on, there are going to be a lot of fast cars, planes and swimmers in Melbourne.
More after the race.
