Pirates??

reading Andy Holgate's 1st book, which is a good read, but what are the Pirates? Is it just a virtual club etc? Is there any training plans if you join etc? Website? cheers Dazza!

  • Not really a club, just a group of like minded nutters who don't take themselves too seriously and are ace at giving advice, support and extracting the michael. Website at www.pirateshipoffools.co.uk

  • Cheers, just checking out website now thx! I do Olympic distance at mo, but have just entered The Slateman in Wales for next year..which I no is not a 70.3 or the full but is a challenge for a bald chocolate cake loving fen dweller!

  • Welcome on board. You'd best search out the kit order thread and get some new togs. Slateman looks cool. They keep repeating it on one of the fitness channels on Sky.
  • you know what I'm after a new tri suit, so why not a Pirate one? I need something other than black! Slateman is brutal but a challenge for me, hoping to do Vitruvian next year to, as it's on my door step! 

     

  • how do I purchase a tri suit? can only see casual wear?

  • Darren you need to keep an eye out for Kit Threads , you have just missed the most recent one so need to keep a look out for anyone who has ordered wrong size and is looking to offload

    Welcome to the darkside image

  • Thank you, just posted on the link you gave me. Desperate for a me  tri suit! 

  • I very much doubt that the Tri suits will reach minimum order and I would certainly not reccommend one for long distance stuff

  • Trisuits didnt maje the cut fir the order you may just make it in time for a tritop (monaco) 

    The slateman is a great raceimage

  • Shame about tri suits, just been to 'order' thread and asked for tri top, hope to get somethings for Slateman if poss image hopefully I will get some..

    There are several people in your area then... me included.... i'm on the Stamford side of P'boro, so a regular ride out to Rutland etc... keep an eye out for yellow and black!

    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • Ah cool, im in Deeping St James, keep an eye out for me, usually train in week. Slow and eat cake!
  • close.... very close!.... i'm in MD image

    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • Ha ha really!? You must of seen me either splashing about in Deeping pool or plodding around the streets! If I could upload pic on here you may have noticed me! How did you go about ordering your top etc, thru thread on here??

    yep.... just wait for the appropriate kit order.

    Will keep an eye out.... i'm usually out on a silver Specialized, or running out through Frognall and the back way into DSJ.... dont often run or ride in Pirate gear though, as i've only got a tri top and its rarely warm enough... but do always carry a pirate bottle on the bike!

    We'll have to organise a ride out and round the Vit course at some point... its about a 50 mile round trip if you only do one lap

    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • Hi, sounds good to me, i work shifts, so can do week days if that suits, I've been round the Vit route a few times, was out there Sunday, been for a run tonight to, usually run in a red or blue cap, DSJ/Frognall/MD/Northboro. Bike I ride in winter is a Black Scott...let me know if you fancy a run, depending on how quick you are! Im on twitter @Dazlar72
