Yamba Triathlon Festival 2013 - Day 2 on 12 October in pictures

A brief look at a wonderful day for competitors and spectators alike. 

From the camera of Vicki James......

Just short of 550 competitors took part in the Yamba Triathlon at the weekend and CEO of Elite Energy Mark Emerton said they'd be back for more next year.... the organiser said Yamba was the "perfect place for an event like this". With a boost to the local economy and another event to add to the yearly calendar, the Yamba triathlon is here to stay..... Mark Emerton said he was overwhelmed by how much support both the event and the competitors received. "All the little cafes had posters in their windows," Emerton said. "And then when we went through Wooloweyah, people were all out on the picnic tables to show their support. "That is the sort of stuff that really makes an event. "The athletes are happy, the community was patient, and that just makes it all work well." [The Daily Examiner 14 October 2013]

i was looking for a tax funded Abbott in the Pics, but didn't notice him.
Maybe he is laying low or sponging somewhere else this weekend with his daughters.
