ETT Nov Update


For those competitive UK ETT'ers the last day for entry to the British Rowing Indoor competition is tomorrow the 30th November. Follow the link for further information: BRIC 2015


Talking of competitions, our very own erg-rocket Rainer has been up to his winning ways again.
He won a silver medal at the Estonian IRC for the 6000m distance. His winning time was 21:31,4, a personal best by 13 seconds!

Not content with one medal at the end of October he also won the Estonian erg marathon. Amazingly this was Rainer's first ever marathon and he won with a time of 2:45:20.3.

Well done Rainer. We are all very proud of you at ETT!

FTC Winner's Tee's

It has taken me a bit longer to organise myself with the FTC winner's T-shirts but here they are:

Hand-made by yours truly.
I appliqu├ęd a bold red ETT with orange satin stitching around the edges to secure the fabric and make it stand out.

Matt L, Jason, Bill S, Mike F and Daniel - they will be in the post this week!
I hope you like them and please e-mail me a photo of you wearing it for the blog.

I will be doing another batch for the January Team Challenge too.

Matt L could you e-mail me your address please -
