Hello strangers - I hope you are all well

I did break that 6:20 back in 2012 with a 6:12/6:13 but as ever my timing was a little off.
WOW, big congrats. Damian, that is a huge result!! ^O^ ^O^ ^O^ ^O^ ^O^

Re: do you want a new captain

Thanks for your input, Stan! Yes, I guess in most other Clubs they want a Captain that is very visible and active! But as various stated above, the heart and soul of our Free Spirits is the only-one-rules ethos we have. As such you're still my image of our captain, even though less active erg-wise t...

Re: Injuries.....:(

I had the opportunity to coach one of my customers midweek after a business appointment (hence the oddball 2153 metres rowed). It was on a filthy Model D with PM5 (drag 139 with damper on 10) but somehow whilst showing him the correct technique, I've managed to slightly tear my left bicep (or where...

Erik, I am not sure whether it was formulated as a proper question, but I was wondering why some leave their first attempt on the C2CTC until the end of the month. Some provided their feedback on that. As much as you are into chess, I would never call you stupid! Only smart people don’t get bored b...
