Re: April CTC: 639m.

With just six boats floated, April wasn't one of the team's better months...

OK, I've made you wait long enough, plummy. :fswink: Here is the proof that your second attempt was enough to get you top spot:

Re: WAARC - April 2013 - 60min

Great 60mins Other Alan! I reckon that could put you at #1.

Well done on completing your first hour of power, millie. And a nice pace too. :) Will you be tempted to try this one again? ;)

Thanks guys. Millie, you're right. My cold has completely gone now. Probably helped by not being at work for three weeks, surrounded by snivelling fools!

Re: WAARC - April 2013 - 60min

Great start to this month's WAARC, with five entries. Hopefully a sign of things to come.

You've got a bit more work to do if you want to win this month, Mikkel. :fswink:

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Nice PB, Richard. I reckon that one wont last long, though. :fswink: =D> PB for me over 60mins today. Nothing to get too excited about, as it was only my second such effort as a LWT, and my first was a R20 row, but still... it's always nice to post in this thread. 60min 2:09.8 @ 24spm 2:09.4 @ 24spm...

Re: March CTC 920m

March's CTC is now complete - we succeeded in floating nine boats. This is a bit down on last month's twelve which is a bit disappointing. I really thought with a shorter distance we'd see increased participation, but that wasn't the case. Anyway, thanks to all 46 Free Spirits who did take part in t...

WAARC - April 2013 - 60min

April is the final month of the 2012/13 rowing season. Many of us will be looking to row some extra meters to try and hit individual distance targets. To provide a little extra motivation, April's Weight & Age Adjusted Rowing Challenge will be the longest yet - 60min . The rules are simple: Row for ...

No worries, millie. You already had two attempts - can't complain about that. All the best with your three regattas. I managed to squeeze in my attempt this afternoon. Preparations weren't ideal, but in the end happy enough to set a time 10s away from my PB. Probably better than expected, to be hone...

Re: WAARC - March 2013 - 2km

It does impose a slight penalty. The 'magic' weight is 77.27kg - anything below that gets a bonus, anything above gets a penalty. But, of course, those heavier than you will get a bigger penalty.

Still off work, and still enjoying having a hired C2 in the kitchen. :fssmile: So I've been doing much more rowing than I otherwise would had I still been at work. Just following the early stages of C2's 20-min training plan. So lots of R20 and R22 sessions. And now I have a heart rate monitor and k...

The Brambling migrates from Scandinavia to spend the winter in this country, so it's always amazing to see such a small bird and consider the distances it has travelled and will travel again shortl...
