A small contingent of ten members from the Byron Bay Tri club attended the NSW Club championships for the final leg of the North Coast Interclub League for the season that is worth double points.

Byron Bay had won all previous races in 2024 and made no mistakes after travelling down to Forster, NSW for the event.

‘We triumphed,’ said the club’s spokeswoman Deb Fuller. ‘We won all seven races of the season, leading Coffs Harbour by an impressive 47.5 points. Following Coffs were Yamba, Hat Head, Ballina, Grafton, Port Macquarie and Tweed Triathlon clubs.

‘The club’s total score of 198 points is the highest ever achieved by our club since the series began six years ago. It’s our fourth win of the series,’ she said.

‘This success reflects the tremendous effort and commitment of our members and showcases the exceptional talent in our area’.
