Any shipmates on board for this event or will I have to do splice the mainbrace unaided?

for those not familiar '' splice the mainbrace'' was a hit dance in the 60's , hence do splice the mainbrace, either that or a typo

Looking forward to hearing about it - it is on my list for 2015.

as you know it's being touted as very fast, because of being very flat, whilst that is all relative, I can compare it to my experience at outlaw and hopefully that will be positive for all

I like the sound of this for my 1st iron and now realise not hearing about it before was because it is new!! Will be rooting for you all in the hope you can enlighten us after about how it went.

I read something recently that said they are marketing it as a first iron distance friendly event, so with two Outlaws under my belt at just short of 15 hours the numbers should be interesting. It is certainly going to be a bit weird with a much smaller field than I am used to , have not suffered before with being  at the back of a much bigger field so am expecting more of the same ,just me and that ever present wheezing noise.....

The HIM events run by 113 have had really good reviews. I think there will be a few of us Piratey types around also. Camlo, why not come and Marshall or just have a gander. Pop down with your bike and get an idea of the course too! It's a beautiful area
