  • lots have IP - the big pirate outing of 2006 was to Frankfurt and there's been loads who have done it since. not me though
  • Yes twice. It's an excellent one. Look at the photo of the finish in Triathlete mag to get an idea of the support.

    Fills quickly though so get online as soon as they open entries.
  • Oh and twice it's been non wetsuit. So plan accordingly.
    Oh and it's a shorter cut off too. 15 hours.
  • I did read that it filled up in 7 hours last year! 

    The lack of wetsuit and 15 hour cut off would make it, erm interesting though .... hmm

  • I think I will try and do this in 2013 if anybody else is interested in joining me image

    "interesting" for you    - downright embarassing for me  image
  • Oh dear DK ... come on, what happened?!

    GB, I've got my eye on it for 2013 too, lets go for! image

  • UI I am thinking of doing Wiesbaden 70.3 again next year maybe if you happen to be around

    although I am disapointed to see the swim has changed location from the harbour now!
  • 15 hours eh ...probably not a good one for me then lol
  • Yea. That's what I meant about embarrassing. Would I make the cut off image
  • DK and Slag (and myself..) plenty of time to train, I vote for a second pirate outing to Frankfurt in 2013 image
  • Thats *not* the way way we do things round here

    If you are not on the main ship then we confiscate your kit   image

    For the nakedness I take it plum? I must also confess to going there for the ahem 'scenery'

  • Naked Ironman ?! image but what about the transission rules!

  • and there was me thinking the tight yellow monaco was a bad look on me .. Nekkid ironman !!.. The good people of Germany will be grateful that i finish in the dark image.

    Count me in for 2013 (if we can get an entry)  .. i like a challenge image 

  • I would definitely do Germany - but only if you could get al Murray to come along too image

    well the helmet rule would certainly apply! image

  • This is THE best race I've ever done in terms of support, organisation and atmosphere.

    Loved it.

  • Just checked when registration opens for this as I've heard it sells out pretty much on the day, glad I did as registration opens next Friday!!

    Still haven't decided whether to sign up or have a year off  ... image .. decision decisions ....

  • It's the date see, it's the same day as my "HOW OLD!" birthday .. still can't decide if doing one on my birthday is a good idea though ...  I may well come out to Lanza to support though, did enjoy my week there recently. 

  • Thanks for the pm IP.... Tbh I tihnk this is one for the future for me. If I do IM next year it may well be lanza, but actually thinking about doing some shorter stuff and take advantage of my youth whilst I still have it

    Oh and I still cannot believe you are "HOW OLD" next year! I thought you were at least XX years younger!! image

    Does that still apply then? And is it Henley or Lanza you have to do naked?image

  • I know, who'd have thought it, 28!

    Surely, to be fair, it should both.  Has there been a naked Pirate outing yet?  (runs off to check I haven't signed up to either of these events... !)
