Jonathan Ratcliffe – has now swam all 7 swims that make up the Ocean Challenge. This year he swam the last three - the Tsugarustrait in Japan, the Catalina Channel in California, and in a final dash for the line, Jonathan swam the 14-mile Cook Strait in New Zealand, in early December, to complete the challenge.
BEST NOVICE: [Jake Daniels]
Jake Daniels competed in 5 Mini-Series races and recorded 5 PB's, taking his time down from 64:25 to 56:33.
MOST IMPROVED: [Roger Canham]
Roger Canham had a good claim on this, having won 2 World Championships. It is easier to improve quickly when you first come into a sport, but Roger has been around for many years and has still managed to improve.

Terry Murphy has guided the club races this year as Race Director, and had a major part in promoting the first Peterborough Schools Triathlon in June.
