Newbie advice needed for Catalina Tri

Post by marti » Wed, 06 Oct 1999 04:00:00

I am planning on attending the Catalina Triathalon on Nov. 6th.  I have
a few questions though.  This will be my first tri, my current plan is
to take the ferry over at 6:00 AM, (should arrive around 7:15), register
and then hang out till the 9:00 AM start time.  My questions are this.
How often do these events sell out?  My work nature doesn't really allow
me to make forward plans so I basically have to take each day as it
comes.  And, is it basically insane to deal with some stressful travel
before the competition (wake up time is probably 4:30AM)  All thoughts
and considerations are appreciated.  Thanks.
