August 16th saw the 2015 Abefeldy triathlon take place in sunny Perthshire.
The midweek water temperature meant that the swim had to be cut to 750M. Lomo had to lay out a new course on Saturday and first thing Sunday morning using new larger buoys to make sighting easier.
The 'Lomo Swim' took place on Loch Tay on sunday morning just after 7am in perfect conditions, even the water temperture rose.
With such good conditions there were some really fast times.
The competitors assemble at Taymouth Marina for their pre event briefing.
The first wave of swimmers starting to enter the water at the side of the crannog under the Lomo arch.
Junior and senior swimmers enter the water at 7:15 for 7:20 start.
The swim section was clockwise this year and conditions were perfect. No swimmers were plucked from the water this year.
There were quite a few competitors spotted competing in our Lomo Challenger Triathlon Wetsuit From there the athletes left the beautiful setting of Loch Tay and headed out on the cycle leg which took them over Schiehallion and around Loch Rannoch. This year there were no winds and nice temperatures making for an excellent cycle.
