Re: First time on the water

The rental skiffs on the Serpentine in Hyde Park still looked like this in the late sixties. By ‘88 they were gone. The “tub” appellation is understandable from the pov of those who have rowed competitively in extreme shells but they were quite beautiful, strong, light, and servicable examples of th...

Re: Forum Flyers

Martin, welcome! We have few rules but we do have a dream list of stuff we need for team success on the CTC. High on that list are women and lightweight men because boats don’t float without them. So it’s always a BYOW party at FF. Got a lady or lightwt friend with an erg in her or his fitness plan ...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Edwin asks: If I throw out a slightly better time in the near future, I'll dive into the verification protocol. Can I find those even some time after the actual training? Yes, the V-code for any training or test piece can be retrieved from monitor memory or USB drive at any time after completion of ...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WRS

I suspect MS. Roebuck lost interest in setting records about the same time she stopped logging dailies. :lol: Is it possible the collective meters of all her ranked pieces could be equal to her lifetime meters? My bad. I now notice that the combined meterage of her two ranked efforts amount to,less ...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Amazing that the lady had to wait 14 yrs. to have her WR challenged! She must have been sweating bullets :?: :lol: Her public profile is witness to just how fast cream can rise. (Cf date logbook acquired and date of entry in question.) I assume she had a great deal of experience, uni or club, prior ...

Re: Tenshuu's Trials

When you have a massive wobble and really slow down it is quite surprising to me how the average pace doesn't drop faster, and it does feel like you're crawling along. Good effort on the 1k and next time, start at 1:46 and drop it from there Something to be said for the old college try. If a man’s ...

Good time haring thru the 1000m, Tenshu. Consider the possible advantage to reversing the pace vector next time.

Re: Concept2, PM4 Rower: Heartrate Monitoring clocks/belts

Jimmyshand’s Garmin is cheap and cheerful. It’s what I have. ANT+ will connect to your PM4 and to the PM5 so no obsolescence factor if you upgrade your monitor. After seeing the Amazon price, I would seek no further.

Re: Madness 2019!

I have not used the corrected weight option, and was wondering if women typically use this when they track their time? The corrected weight score is only an option in the context of boat crew selection in OTW (on water) rowing. The penalty for weight in a boat is that the greater the crew weight, t...

Re: Forum logi

You’re welcome, Jill. The takeaway from this episode for the average technoputz should be that finding the proper door to knock on is paramount to getting the attention of the proper squeak greaser. Doug (Citroen) frequently repeats the admonition that Concept 2 does not employ anyone to monitor for...
