Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Back on the comeback trail today with 2x10 mins. Covered 3818m @ 2:37 pace. Enough to quicken my breath, but not gasping. Just need to build this kind of row up.

Re: Nonathlon 2021

ok exciting news. Got an email today saying I am now eligible to buy a C2, so I placed the order a few minutes ago and it should be arriving early next week. Excited and scared at the same time now.

Great job John! Now I am convinced that you are better suited for the job than me! Keep going!!

Stan, could you please remove me from the team, as I am now competing for a different team?

Success and fun with the Nonathlon to you all!

Re: Last year of the Meteboard? / Meterboard3?

But we do still need to find a solution because lots of people value the meterboard. I would think something like... 1. Description of skill set needed and likely time commitment. 2. Stan emails members and asks if anyone has the skill set and is willing to take on the role. 3. If that works fine. ...

Re: do you want a new captain

Thank you very much all of you for the kind words. I think Paul hit the nail on the head when he said Free Spirits needs a light touch because the whole reason we were founded was to enable us to do what we want and not be tied down by what a captain wants. The team has been blessed with a lot of se...

do you want a new captain

Good Evening all. I took on the role of captain pretty early on to ensure we could take part in various erg challenges as a team. This was pretty easy for me to do as I was regularly rowing. Over 3 or 4 years I have not been rowing as much and have admittedly neglected some of my captainly duties. I...

The fastest 8 are in boat A and the remainder are in boat B, but boats B,C, and D will not float. I think the deadline is past for doing it but in case there are any ...
