Over the years there has been a lot of friendly rivalry between the Pirates and TriTalk, but today the Pirates said farewell to one of their long standing members - Nick Lisle (Nicko) - who finally lost his 4+ year battle with cancer a couple of weeks ago, and the burial service took place today in Eastbourne.

For those who did Outlaw this year, Nick did the swim as part of a relay - many of you may remember the Pirate with the Unicorn rubber ring. He was terminally ill at this stage and a couple of months later went into a hospice. Nicko was a stubborn bugger and he bore his illness with great humour and a never give up attitude but the big C is a cruel foe.

I'm sure many of the Tritalk crew will have met Nick over the years either at triathlons or running events and will send their condolences to his wife Jackie and family. I was proud to call him a good friend.

there is a fundraising page in his memory for funds for St Wilfred's Hospice where he saw his last days - https://www.gofundme.com/the-nick-lisle-memorial-fund

RIP Nick
