BIRC 2013 news

Hi all, our only team mate Edward who had entered the BIRC this year had to pull out of racing on Sunday due a number of unforseen circumstances - all related to house matters (boiler breaking, flooding etc)... Which is a shame but there is always next year!

To ease his conscience he rowed a pretty impressive 2k time last weekend as part of his training program with 7:32.9 which is only a couple of seconds off his BIRC 2012 PB last March! This places Edward in the top 10% of his age group on the C2 world rankings. If he had been there on Sunday it would have put him in 7th position in this year's line up.


  1. That's a shame that you can't make it to the BIRC Edward! I'm sure that you would rather be there instead of dealing with house issues, especially now just before Christmas and in the middle of your winter ..... nightmare! I hope you get it sorted out ok! Cheers Dave P:)

  2. Thanks Dave - still haven't got any heating at home but managed to stop the flood! Looking at my age group I would have come 7/10 - it's those others that keep doing below 7 minutes that I will have to beat next year!
