An upset in the fianl dory leg of the IronMan competition.

An upset in the fianl dory leg of the IronMan competition.

I got down to the San Clemente Ocean Festival a little later in the day but in time to see the final of the IronMan Competition.  Its a combination of swim, run and dory boat on an individual basis.  I think Mitch Kahn gets this every year and this year he did not disappoint.
There are other events that went on through out the day and will finish up tomorrow late in the day.  I shot some crowds and people on the beach; it is always fun to see people enjoying themselves.
Crowds did not seem to be to big this year as it was somewhat overcast.  I saw a lot of people lined up at the train depot heading back home.  Hopefully tomorrow the sun will come out and more people will go.  I am sure from a competitor point of view the hazy overcast is just fine.
