New position for Affiliation ranking

The majority of Empty the Tanks team mates have affiliated to the team which means all personal metres you row throughout the season count towards the Team Standings.

We have been in 13th position for months and today we moved up to 12th place out of 1,489 teams - which is amazing.

To affiliate yourself to the team you need to go to your online logbook and edit your profile - there is a section that will ask you which team to affiliate to - when you select Empty the Tanks, all your logbook season metres will automatically contribute to the team totals.

April CTC

This month's Cross Team Challenge has been chosen by the Sub 7 Rowing Club - to row as many metres as possible in 7 minutes. No-one from Empty the Tanks has entered a time yet, but we have 23 days to make sure we get at least 5 team mates entered so we can 'float a boat'.

WRC 2010 Day 23

We are in week 4 of the World Rowing Challenge and we have been in 12th position for the past 12 days. The last time we took hold of 12th position for this period of time was in the Fall Rowing Challenge in 2009.

WRC 2010 Day 20


Its Easter weekend - we should all put in some extra metres powered by chocolate eggs. Also a great idea to get rid of any eggstra body weight we may have gained.

We have had a stronghold on 12th position for the past 8 days and have rowed over 4,782,340 metres. Nearly 50% of the team have rowed over 100,000 metres in 20 days - keep up the hard work Empty the Tanks team mates.
