Nice one Stan. :fssmile:

No attempt from me this month, which is pretty poor given I run this challenge. :oops: In my defence, illness got in the way.

Here's the current leaderboard. And unless anyone submits a late attempt, it will also be the final one.

Congratulations to Bill for winning February's 500m WAARC! =D>

If it's any consolation, Mikkel, you did record the fastest actual time. :fssmile:

Congratulations Bill :!: :D =D> =D> =D> I understand that I have some work to do, if I still want to row 1:30 when I reach the 60ties :lol:

Second place is excellent in this case. :D Even if I could have done another row faster, it would've be a waste of time and power. And I didn't really had the time or power for another attempt, using a lot of it on the CS and CTC. :fssmile:

Well done on your time Mikkel - it was a winner really.

Translation: I only won because of my age (and good looks :lol: :lol: ) :lol:

Still very impressive. You'd still easily beat me even without the age adjustment!
