New NZ team mate

We have a new team mate called Darren, 30 from New Zealand. He has already signed up for the Fall Rowing Challenge and he used to row competitively - he will be able to help us with our aim for a top ten position.

The competition starts on the 15th September and the idea is that we have to row as many metres as possible as a team - all metres count, so even if you only row 20,000 metres during the month of the competition get it logged - it might just make the difference.

20 Empty the Tanks team mates have signed up for the FRC 2010:

Boat 1 floated in the August CTC

5 Empty the Tanks team mates have rowed 3 x 1,000 metres with 2 minutes rest for the August Cross Team Challenge, which means we have one boat floated in the rankings. We are positioned 11/30 boats and have gained 4 points.
Its strange how the time goes by so slowly during the rowing part of the interval session but seems to speed up during the 2 minute rest period - did anybody else notice that?
