MORE than $16,000 was raised at Thursday's 2005 Ironman Day.

One of the day's organisers, Ian Speechley, said while numbers were down this year, police, businesses and the public had been generous in their support for the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter fundraiser.

"We still had 63 teams which was more than 200 people. There was a really good spirit on the day. It was fantastic," he said.

And while some teams bowled and golfed without a hint of talent, others took to the sports with vigour.

A Durrington's team won the event, while the team of Brown, Loveday and Luxton won the golf. Marsh's team won the bowls section.

Best dressed team went to police from Coffs Harbour, who came as lifesavers complete with a blowup doll in a bikini.
