  1. Hi everyone. Just to let you know out of courtesy that I have decided to move teams and join Free Spirits. Nothing personal against anyone but I want to get more structure into my training and the fact that they have a very active forum will encourage me to do this.

    Good luck to everyone and I hope you continue to enjoy your rowing.

    Best wishes


  2. Hi Phil,
    All the best with your adventures with Free Spirits and thanks for all support with Empty the Tanks.
