Regular Visitor Says Islands Have Great Potential For Sporting Events

New Grimsby, Tresco

Hot on the heels of the Tresco Triathlon last month, some friends who visit regularly have completed their own inter-island swimming, cycling and running challenge yesterday.

And they hope that, with some publicity, more people could be encouraged to take part in what they hope will be an annual event.

Tom Stansfield and Sam Yates cycled three times around Tresco to complete an 8 km circuit and then swam from the slipway to the quay on Bryher, which is almost 1 km.

Tom says he has been coming to Scilly each year since he was born and he’d like to encourage more visitors to experience the beauty of the islands and the potential that our location has for sporting challenges.
