2017 Whidbey Island Triathlon
Updated: Aug 8, 2020
July 29, 2017. A stunning morning on calm Goss Lake for the start of the annual Whidbey Triathlon on beautiful Whidbey Island. The lake was calm, but everyone there was excited for the start. Racers waiting. Kayakers and other supporters watching. Organizers busy. The first wave of swimmers pounds the water toward the first buoy!
Thanks to South Whidbey Parks and Recreation for the opportunity to get experience documenting the race from above.
