The entry should open late September, I don't think it will fill staright away, this years only filled so quickly because so many pirates entered that it pushed the number up so quick that people who where thinking about it had to enter.
If it does fill will be about December

Is this likely to be beat Henley for the number of pirates attending?
More chance of getting the orsum pirate feed station going again, or was the plan to move it to Henley?
i'll still be Henley in some form
Mr Z , count me in
me too, but only if Mr Z is bringing his tent again!!
It certainly seems to be slightly more popular than Henley:

it's not the 100's we had on the list last year - but still a sizeable crowd
i think that this is definitely going to piush henley for the rights to be the pirate championship race......i may be wrong but i think that its usually whichever is the biggest ship sailing and we certainly look like we have a sizable ship sailing
and i liked the pub...........and the sunshine makes me want to train............but being sensible and building back up slowly..............
beer training is going well........

Personally im torn which should be the pirate championship and how it should be chosed.My thoughts:Historically its a nominated race and the ship gets behind that race, that doesnt seem to be happening this year with Henley, though that remains to be seen.My preferernce for the pirate championship was always Lanza as I felt it was a strong contender, being a big European Ironman which had not yet hosted the pirate championship.Outlaw was the pirate championship this year so for that reason along I dont think it should be next year, also, Outlaw could easily be a popular race year after year, does that mean PSOF championship Outlaw every year?I dont think it should just be about numbers,for me, the pirate championship is about moving the pirates forward, seeing new places, savouring the big ticket experience of Ironman events accross Europe and the cammoradorie that creates.If you ask those that have been to Eurpoean Pirate championships and Outlaw im sure most will draw a line of distinction between what its like to all rock up at Outlaw for 2 days, spread accross various hotels, campsite etc etc vs visiting travelling further afield and all the excitement a foreign city and Ironman.I think it would be a wrong move to have Outlaw as the PSOF championship next year, I also think we should make a pitch for getting out of the UK again in 2014,
TG - yep, I would be up for some long rides... might find there are a few others on the list from our neck of the woods too.
Does anyone have a garmin trace of the outlaw bike route - how hilly is it? Thinking of designing some training routes.
Barlos, I agree.Move onwards an forwards PSC its not

PSC, Outlaw is not at all hilly, there is one bump (Oxton Bank) which you go up once, the rest is an out and out TT course.
Oxton Bank = 'Was that it' It really is just a pimple..... in the wind
The wind was more of an issue than that was .. its really not bad in the slightest
