Well we have had a very good month with almost five boats floated into the points rankings for the 2 minute Cross Team Challenge session.
Excellent work everybody!

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


  1. Well done team and welcome to our new team mates ...... including Anielka:) I'm looking forward to this months CTC and will use this to work on my 5km ranking. It's great to have a longer CTC after a couple of months of sprinting.

    In regards to our own CTC I think I've made enough suggestions already but I would be very interested to hear what others are thinking and look forward to the survey. Cheers Pongi:)

  2. Thats a nice result, well done everybody and thanks for welcoming the newbees on board. Obviously we are in need of more female team mates. After the current challenge being close to 5.000m I would not go for 20 min, 9 seconds (which would be a pretty similar challange for many people). So either shorter (2.009 m) or longer (2009 seconds =33 min 48 sec). I would prefer the longer piece.
    Cheers Galeere (AKA Hardy)
