The swim- which was in the sea started at 7am for the ironmen -poor lighting and concerns from competitors that the safety boats were not plentiful enough and couldn't see the swimmers in the dark. Not well lit in the dark and as there were 2-3m swells, high safety risk at times. Bike ride would have been stunning but was through torrential rain, thunder and lightening. Good marshalling telling people to slow down, but there were alot of falls. Apparently the briefing was in italian so not helpful to non italian speakers. Greta atmosphere and support throughout the race. Bike ride was hilly and challenging, but well marked. The run was also well marked. Very much a locals race- pasta afterwards and fun awards ceremony. Quite a few ambulances en route (they were needed in the adverse weather conditions)
