Re: Concept2 Spring VIII Series

Thanks for the encouragement Max! Yes, let's get going, at least it will be good training and I can use some motivation to row being stuck at home. Peter please can you speak to Stan again to confirm he's willing. I did that Sunday night but he hasn't read my message yet. I also asked him to join th...

Re: Concept2 Spring VIII Series

Jon, that train has left the station, the spring challenge has started, unfortunately without Free Spirits.

Re: Concept2 Spring VIII Series

So my question was: „Hi there, I have a question re the Spring VIII series. How are the teams defined? Are they the already existing teams e.g. participating in the WEC? Or can teams create „subteams“ especially for this event? If so, would the meters of those subteam team members be subtracted from...

Re: Concept2 Spring VIII Series

I talked ro Stan about this topic as I didn‘t want to pass him over on this. His reply basically was „go ahead“. I also had a chat with Tako the other day and he brought up a different thought. If the participating team members changed their affiliation from „Free Spirits“ to „Free Spirits Spring Ch...

Re: Concept2 Spring VIII Series

Max, the rules are a bit confusing indeed (the way I understand them). I understand that a boat can have more than eight people (the „roster“), but they are assigned to their boat for the entire challenge. The captain can decide which eight persons are in the boat for the current challenge (e.g. the...

Re: Concept2 Spring VIII Series

If I understand it correctly there are two ways to participate as a team: 1. as the already existing team "Free Spirits" with Stan as team captain. Stan would have to fill the boat(s) with team members willing to take part. I don't know if he is aware of that as he isn't on the forum that often any ...

Re: Concept2 Spring VIII Series

Thanks for bringing that up Jon, I‘d be very tempted to take part. Do we need to create a new team for this event like for the Indoor Rowers League? I‘d be more than happy to do that if that‘s ok.

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2019/2020

It's great to see we got eight scores in for the March 10k, especially under the given circumstances! We are still in 6th position which is good to see, but of course staying healthy these days is far more important. Unbenannt.JPG In April we'll have the final stage of the IRL, a simple 500m.

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2019/2020

Managed a small improvement yesterday in my third attempt:

Really happy and a bit disappointed with this as it was 8.6 seconds quicker than a week ago but 2.7 seconds off my SB. Looks like I have to do it again... :shock:
