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

Keep us posted and I'll come and support - only live 60 miles from Frankfurt and done this one twice, so know where to be to watch.

DK and Slag (and myself..) plenty of time to train, I vote for a second pirate outing to Frankfurt in 2013
