Is it to early to start the debate?
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
Yes but you sure as hell wont be back home first from there !!!Text me i'll do it for you
Just tell me where we're going in 2014 and i will follow!
PS - I'm doing Bala this year as well.
Slim you playing in the Chilterns this year?
phew - just spent 20 mins reading 10 pages - thanks for that!
??? 2014, maybe Kalmar, maybe C Almire, maybe C near Barcelona, maybe somewhere else....??
I am seriously thinking of using the ignore button as well
Running out of names except The SAGAMAN (for over 60s)
24 Iron distance events in the UK!!!FFS thats (to quote Flyaway) increduble
middle aged midlife crisis man
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.
FF - Yep already entered the Chiltern 100! - one of my favourite events
Oh my word what a lot has changed in the last eight years!
If there is a pirate anniversary race in 2015 then I think maybe the remaining 'original' pirates should be the ones who choose where to go. There are probably four or five of us left including Jj who is and will always be as much pirate as any of us without having to don rubber.
The rest of you can just follow as you have all been doing since then
