A question was raised at to what WTC’s strategic objective is. Rachel explained that we are a community club, focused on providing triathlon opportunities for all with a fun atmostphere. These means that we aim to be accessible and to keep costs as low as possible. The junior section also focuses on maximising participation, such as achieving a turnout of 31 members for our junior aquathlon in September.

A further question was asked as to whether there should be a club development plan. While there has been one in the past, it has not been updated for a year and it was agreed that this would be a task for the newly elected committee for 2020. Chris Holland explained that a core part of the plan is running beginners and improvers courses in alternate years, with a beginners course already planned for 2020.

Committee to consider preparing or updating a club development plan for 2020 onwards.
