July CTC update and August CTC

What a great month! Not only were we joined by two new team mates Lucas and Laura, we floated five boats AND had 30 ETT'ers take part in the Banana Boat 2 minute blast restricted to 20spm. We almost floated a sixth boat (just needed one extra female rower) and partially filled a seventh boat (its the first time that has ever happened!).

There was a lot of healthy banter about this session and team mates went out of their comfort zones to help the team achieve our best participated Cross Team Challenge event ever!! Big congratulations to everybody who took part and for those members who continuously improved their results over the course of the month! Well done - you know who you are.....

Looking forward to rowing with you all again for the 6999 sub7k this month. See above post! Row strong ETT'ers!

  1. I had a last minute attempt yesterday to hit 600m but couldn't do it. (Amazing that those top guys were hitting nearly 700m!) After a gentler row for 10 minutes I decided to try once more - and failed miserably (tank was empty befoe the end!).

    August Challenge - I posted this somewhere else but I don't think anyone noticed - but Sub7 seem to have changed their mind about the challenge - it's a lot worse than 6999m now...

    From forum:
    "The Sub 7 mixed stroke rate 8 x 500m / 2 minutes rest.

    Any 4 reps at 20spm or below
    Any 4 reps at 30spm and above

    1 second penalty per 1spm if you exceed rate 20 on the 20spm reps or fail to rate 30 on the 30spm reps.
    Example: Rate 21 incurs a 1 second penalty per rep, Rate 22 incurs a 2 second penalty, and so on.
    Likewise, Rate 29 incurs a 1 second penalty, Rate 28 incurs a 2 second penalty, and so on.
    Further example "All reps at rate 25 would mean 8 x 5 second penalties, so 40 seconds added to your overall time"

    Standing / Static start for the first rep. Standing or rolling for the 2nd to 8th reps!"

    This could well be torture?!

  3. Hi I would normally find out about the next C2 CTC on the UK C2 forum but the website has changed and I can't track down the CTC thread at the moment. I will re-post when I find out more details....

  4. Go to therowingcompany.com instead. I don't know why it's changed and it's all very sudden, but it's basically exactly the same but with more orange and less green.
