First foray into buying upgrades - advice needed

Hi! I have a giant defy 4 which I think is the 2014 model and cost about £600 at the time. I'm a purely recreational rider who likes taking part in sprint and standard distance tris. 
My average speed on the bike tends to be around 26-28 km/h for distances that tend to be no more than 40k.I've had clip in pedals and decent tyres for a couple of years. 
 

I haven't upgraded the wheels yet which I'm thinking is the next thing to do? 
 
I'd say my budget for wheels would be about £250-£300 for a pair. Is this a worthy investment on a relatively entry level bike? 
 

Any recommendations on a decent wheel set would be appreciated. I've got an 8speed shimano cassette, would prefer to remain clincher and have rim breaks! 
 

thank you in advance
