August CTC Update and September Challenges

Hello folks! I hope you have had a great summer / winter break over August.

We floated two boats in the August Cross Team Challenge which was a rather interesting interval-of-sorts challenge of 500m, 400m, 300m, 200m, 100m that could be rowed at any time during the month from a standing start. The average of which had to be added to create a final tally....

A big thank you to the following team mates who got two boats in the points rankings:

28 pts
Empty the Tanks I6:20.0
Joseph Smyntek (H)
Galeere (H)
Kenneth Murdoch (H)
Rob Drury (L)
Eloisa Murdoch (F)

3 pts
Empty the Tanks II7:46.1
Mike Bode (H)
Jonathan Turns ETT (H)
Bill_Schmidt (L)
Caroline Joynson (L)
Amelia Jean (F)
The Cross Team Challenge for September is a simple ten minute row no restrictions set by Tribesports.

The Fall Team Challenge starts in twelve days time. Have you signed up yet?
Don't worry there is still time!
Go to your C2 logbook and click on the challenges page. There will be the Fall Team Challenge listed there and all you have to do to join in is to follow the links to sign up!

Row as many metres as you can between the 15th September and the 15th October 2016. Upload you metres to contribute to the team total.
We have historically done very well in the Fall Team Challenge and with an aim to beat our 2015 position of 9th place out of 271 teams we ask for everybody to give it a go. Every metre counts.

Looking forward to rowing with you all from the 15th September onwards!


  1. I paused indoor rowing for the end of spring and the summer for my sports leagues. I have 4 5Ks left before the cold sets in, but looking forward to heading back to the indoor rower to participate in this team challenge. Go EmptyTheTanks!

    1. Great to hear! Glad to have you back in the fold!
