reading Andy Holgate's 1st book, which is a good read, but what are the Pirates? Is it just a virtual club etc? Is there any training plans if you join etc? Website? cheers Dazza!

Not really a club, just a group of like minded nutters who don't take themselves too seriously and are ace at giving advice, support and extracting the michael. Website at www.pirateshipoffools.co.uk

Cheers, just checking out website now thx! I do Olympic distance at mo, but have just entered The Slateman in Wales for next year..which I no is not a 70.3 or the full but is a challenge for a bald chocolate cake loving fen dweller!

Welcome on board. You'd best search out the kit order thread and get some new togs. Slateman looks cool. They keep repeating it on one of the fitness channels on Sky.

you know what I'm after a new tri suit, so why not a Pirate one? I need something other than black! Slateman is brutal but a challenge for me, hoping to do Vitruvian next year to, as it's on my door step!

Darren you need to keep an eye out for Kit Threads , you have just missed the most recent one so need to keep a look out for anyone who has ordered wrong size and is looking to offload

Welcome to the darkside

I very much doubt that the Tri suits will reach minimum order and I would certainly not reccommend one for long distance stuff

Trisuits didnt maje the cut fir the order you may just make it in time for a tritop (monaco) 

The slateman is a great race

yep.... just wait for the appropriate kit order.

Will keep an eye out.... i'm usually out on a silver Specialized, or running out through Frognall and the back way into DSJ.... dont often run or ride in Pirate gear though, as i've only got a tri top and its rarely warm enough... but do always carry a pirate bottle on the bike!

We'll have to organise a ride out and round the Vit course at some point... its about a 50 mile round trip if you only do one lap

Hi, sounds good to me, i work shifts, so can do week days if that suits, I've been round the Vit route a few times, was out there Sunday, been for a run tonight to, usually run in a red or blue cap, DSJ/Frognall/MD/Northboro. Bike I ride in winter is a Black Scott...let me know if you fancy a run, depending on how quick you are! Im on twitter @Dazlar72
