ARWC T minus 36 hours
Just back from the race briefing and pasta dinner. No real surprises in the briefing. Burnie confirmed as start and finish points. We are betting on a sea paddle to start. There will be really long legs. Be prepared to get very cold and wet. Watch out for snakes, they saw nine in one day while scouting the course, inclunding Tiger snakes with attitude that don't move so you have to go round. They didn't specify a safe distance for going round. There are also a lot of bio-security requirements, including bagging all clothes after one of the legs! Lots of queries as some teams are travelling light and are worried about having to race naked. Maps and final briefing at 8am Tues.
