Team ERA aka Team "Conch Salad" WINS Great Abaco Family Fitness Triathlon - Olympic Distance!

ERA Dupuch Real Estate once again sponsored Team ERA to compete in the GAFFW triathlon event in Treasure Cay Abaco this past week-end with the Olympic Event held on Saturday March 21st, 2015.


We all rubbed our eyes, rolled out of bed at Oh Dark Thirty and wandered over to the staging area in Treasure Cay next to the gorgeous 3 mile, world-renowned beach. It was pitch black! Soon enough as the sun was rising the swimmers set off and the race was on!

 Getting Ready

Katie Roach swam an impressive speed at 22.35 minutes for the 1500 metre distance (pretty much 1 mile) in the unusually very murky water (created by large ocean swells from the day before) and I hopped on my bike and peddled madly down the Great Abaco Highway even having to negotiate a 300 yard stretch in dense smoke from one of the bush fires so common around this time of year.

I completed my 28.4 mile ride bettering my time of last year by 2 minutes and handed the timing chip off to newcomer Joshua Kelly who at only 13 years of age put in an impressive run time of 54.25 minutes for the 10K (6.2 miles) distance.

Overall we came out ahead of the next best team 9 minutes ahead!

Go Team!

Treasure Cay is an impressive community ripe with potential and boasts every amenity that a homeowner would want in the Bahamas. Name it and Treasure Cay has it.

White powder sand beach, Marina, Golf course, International Airport, Bank, Doctors' offices, pharmacy, community centre with library, shopping etc.

I have invested in this community and own several properties here so my money is where my mouth is....Call me if you would like to take advantage of some seriously attractive prices for an amazing location. Treasure Cay was the hot spot in the Abacos last year with over 17 million dollars in sales.
