Any observant ETT'ers may have noticed two new names in the ranks; Galeere and Daniel have recently joined the team. Welcome aboard guys!

Next months CTC has been chosen by FIRT (French Indoor Rowing Team) and is a straight forward unrestricted distance of 4810 metres - the height of Le Mont Blanc.

We still need to decide on our own CTC in JULY. Any more suggestions team mates?
I will post a survey on the blog and on facebook next week to gather the most popular ideas x

Second boat floated in May CTC

Two boats floated in the points rankings in the second week of the CTC is pretty good going team!

Pongi's daughter Anjelka has helped float boat number two and she is a true lightweight at 17kg and only 5 years old! I can see some true ETT potential here (I have just completed my session but wanted to post with Anjelka's time in boat two).

We need three more team mates to get the third boat into the point rankings for this 2 minute row. Come on team mates give it a go!

This month's CTC is a short and sweet session has been set by the Banana Boat team.
No restrictions - just row for 2 minutes and record the distance you row. Go bananas!

Pongi and Rob D have already given it a great go.
