Urgent Pirate Query

What seemed like a thousand Pirates saw me home last but one at Outlaw12! As a nod of gratitude I want to put the skull and crossbones on my Morphsuit for this years event. I need to get the pic to the printers asap. Anyone point me in the right direction to get the image please?

    I have several pics, PM your email maddress and will send them over

     

  • as there was a debate this morning about the skull and cross bones not being used on running tops just  tri tops........there might be a debate about them being used on morphsuits.......mind you would have to be very brave to compete in a bright yellow morph suitimage

    You have several pics eh??......... my mother warned me about people like you....image

  • you didnb't pay attention though did you Raf?

  • At the time he thought it was career advice from his mum, not a warning.

  • thinking of this where on earth did you get a morph suit the specific pirate yellow........its not the easiest colour to matchimage

  • Sid,

    It was a pleasure to cheer you home last year, and glad to hear you are back for more.

    Note that many of the pirates take the yellow very seriously. Unless you look absolutely ludicrous in lycra they are not happy. My mum warned me never to wear a blue suit, or brown shoes to town. Oddly she never mentioned bright yellow lycra with a massive skull & cross-bones.

    Good luck for this year.

  • good luck , see you there

     here you go...

  • sorted and thank you all. to alay any concerns I can confirm I will look utterly ridiculous and whilst you won't be able to tell I will be smiling. to clarify though it is not a yellow suit (although if I attempt this again a full yellow Morphsuit with the skull and crossbones on the chest would look great!). It is a white suit (easiest to print on) - it will have the Outlaw Symbol and charity info on it. There will be a bit of humour and hopefully inspiration on the back for people to read as they lap me and a couple of Pirate Symbols on the arms to acknowledge you all and by way of a thank you for last year. See you all there (well when I say 'see' i mean a blurred 60% or so!)

  • And your wearing this for the swim with goggles over the top and then on the bike, before then running in it?

    Hows your vision on the bike and how on earth do you eat?

  • Won't be able to wear on swim presumably due to BTF rules re: covered hands and feet?

  • i ran it by BTF and then OSB before committing. they have ok'd it. i will have one suit for the swim with eye holes and mouth holes cut in otherwise i cant see at all and cant breath. once out of the water i will change into a fresh suit for the ride and run. vision and breathing are reduced but i have practised in it and should be ok. food on the bike will be at stations only as i will have to de-hood to eat and then get going again. i have been training by cramming food every hour rather than munching continuously as i ride. fingers crossed it works.

  • I can see you winning the pirate lost in transition prize if you're changing morph suits in T1image

  • Forgive my ignorance but what on earth is a morph suit?

  • Sid - You are truly mad. I read your story when I followed the Outlaw thread here last year and was truly inspired by you and the Pirate reaction to you at the finish.

    Which charity are you racing for? Can we expect to see your story in the papers?

    Ironwolf - A Morphsuit is an all in one head to toes Lycra suit.

  • Sid - yo're mad ... but good luck image

     

    For IW ... Tis is a Morphsuit

  • I have SO much time for this idea, swimming in a morph suit is absolutely outstanding.

    I imagine those training swims got a few looks.

    Morphsuits: new Pirate Kit idea for 2014??

  • I've only done one test swim so far in the suit which only told me i cant see or breath hence the modifications required. Will test next week when I start OW training. This is a pic of me at VLM 2012 in Morphsuit action. Worst marathon yet.

    I will be raising money for Birmingham Childrens Hospital and their research and treatment into Child Brain Tumours. They have treated my niece Poppy since diagnosis aged 14 mths old. She is now 10! I am at about £9200 (after 2 years, 3 Maras, 1 Outlaw) and trying to hit £10000 before I stop doing daft things!

    sid you are crazy but I love it!! image I'll be at the pirate feedstation so will keep an eye out for you (so I can make sure I avoid you crashing into me with your limited vision!)

  • You are mad Sid but I think you've guaranteed the whole Pirate crew cheering you round.  Will look out for you on the swim as you'll be easy to spot image

  • the support last year was unbelievable. the whole community was exceptional! blew me away. 3 weeks and 2 days and i cant wait! Thank you. All of you.

  • Wow! I am impressed. Good luck!!! x
