Good luck the FM is the hardest event to try and finish not only for you but your computer to maintain the connection to the Rowpro race server for 3 hours.

HM is fine but i dont think I ever want to do another FM. Its gets pretty nasty with the time zones as well so yours is 7pm to 10pm local time here still not as bad as the first one I tried that started at 3am local time.

Good luck.

Thanks Carls, indeed having the connection working is going to be the most challenging part of it, personally I have rowed two FM on the erg and another OTW at Dusseldorf and I remember all of them with great pain in my ass :-D

For this one we want to take it easy, slow pace and stops when needed and hopefully a BBQ at the end

What pace do you think most will be rowing? I might be interested, but like Carl, I am very concerned about a dropped connection ruining my row.

Hi, I will not worry about ruining the row, if the connection drops you PM still works, you just stop at Rowpro, anyway we are going to set a ZOOM meeting for anyone without Rowpro or just to keep feeling connected if the connection drops.

For anyone interested the zoom meeting link is this:
