We used to decide at Bala which was the next years race, usually after a beer or 6 and the first person home to start the thread ..... in the days before mobile internet even!!

Cheers for that RBM...i now want to do the Brutal but 2014 is a no go for me....maybe i can be your sherpa for the mountain bit as part of a recce.

I'll be lucky if i can squeeze the Midnight man in 2013.....fancy turning my hand to bike racing for one year....bargain though at £160

Hello all. I dip in, I dip out........

If the feet get sorted may take on UK which I said I never would but its local.

See you all at Bala and maybe even Chiltern..

Looking at the list; very few of them offer the support and big event atmosphere I enjoy.  Even Outlaw struggles against againt the major European events, only IM Wales measures up (and measures up very well).

Wales could be a contender for 2014 but it a tough course and not newbie friendly.

My vote still goes to Kalmar, Sweden

Family Funkin like a foreign Pirate Sailing. Outlaw (whilst lovely and all and after all it was won by one of our very own!) just didn't cut it for us compared to the IMCH and Roth sailings.

So Foreign Sailing please, lots of time to save...and if you decide not to sail on the Foreign Ship, you'll have pennies to spend on bling instead. Job's a good 'un. If we could all go and do Challenge Wanaka please (oh that was such a gorgeous place to cheer on!) that would be super

RBM - you're right, Almere has a full and half - that's why I vote for it, 'cos I can do the half!

Sweden's too bliddy expensive. OH and I got married in Copenhagen and every weekend the town is full of Swedes coming over on the ferry from Malmo because it's cheaper to drink in Denmark, and drink is more available.
