The Byron Bay ‘Breakers’ Triathlon Club finished their season with an impressive and highly respectable second in the Forager North Coast Interclub Series.

The Triathlon NSW competition includes clubs from up and down the North Coast of NSW and is conducted across seven events.

Athletes earn performance and participation points based on their results.

The Breakers tied with Hat Head Hammerheads, however both lost out to the Clarence Valley Club by 12 points.

The Breakers, who won the series last season despite it being cut short owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, have had big plans to go back-to-back, led by their club president Deb Fuller.

‘We are thrilled to be the bridesmaid for this season. We had key members out of the comp and the rest had to work hard to battle it out for the final few races,’ Deb said.

‘Next season, with a full-strength squad, this competition will be ours for the taking’.

The Breakers also took a highly respectable second in Division 4, in their maiden attempt at the NSW Club Championships.
