Ahoy there mateys!

After a long time of stalking these fair old lands i figured it was time for me to finally say hello and official (try) and become a yellow clad pirate and get a yellow pirate sticker by my name!

My name is George, im 24 and currently live in London.

Im in my second year of triathlons.

Last year i completed in sprints, olys and a half in which i managed 5 hrs 45 mins with two punctures ...

Next year i am currently entered for the Outlaw half and IM Frankfurt (which i hope helps me to qualify as a pirate???)

Anyways i just wanted to say hello and hopefully see some of you around... Is there anything particular i should know?

Evening Banksy, welcome aboard!  Don't be shy just pile in on any of the threads that take your interest.  There are a few young Pirates these days.  Some of the lady Pirates need the fresh blood!!    Just beware of the witches coven, eh?!!  

If you want kit, you're a bit late this year, for next years kit.  But there's that much of it about I'm sure someone can lend you something when you really need it.  

Schmunks will post a new kit order thread soon enough, but she's probably busy with the current one.  

Quite a few Pirates London way too.  There should be a London Christmas Social being organised soon, so get your name on that list and come along.  

You've got a daft name already so you're nearly there!

Yes indeed there are a few young piratey types in London who I am sure will be more than willing to lead you astray!

Welcome to the dark side!

Hi...24 isn't that young is it.   I believe the majority act much younger than that 

14/10/2013 at 08:05

I win! Im only 23. I wonder if that makes me the youngest pirate?(well when i get my colours anyway) 

14/10/2013 at 09:36

Ahhh damn I only just turned 24 as well!

Thank you for the warm welcome everyone!!!

I cannot wait to order my first bit of kit, but does that mean I wont be able to order any kit for the following year? If so I suppose ill have to resort to begging, borrowing (hopefully) and stealing… Or will there be chance later on, in the new year or something?

I will try and be as active as possible on the forums… Will certainly try to watch out for that witches oven, i can imagine it can get quite nasty :P

Hi Banksy

Another 'young' (compared to the rest of the dead wood on here), London(ish) based pirate here, training for IM France next year as well as some other things.

Training starts in a couple of weeks or so for me, so may be looking for winter riding company if you fancy some.

Hi Banksy. Another in London here. GB and I will probably be going on a fair few rides over the coming months - this is news to him. Welcome to join us. Can either ride at my pace which is steady, or GB's pace which is fast but you can only get 3/4s of the way home.

Engineer - if you're coming out to play Surrey way, give us a shout

Thanks again for the warm welcome everyone, will post on the facebook in a little bit as well, so if you fancy saying hello again im sure i can give you a cheeky little stalk  Engineer and GB That sounds great if i could head out with you guys sometime... Despite living in London for a year now (ok only really 6 months as i was away with work) I dont really have many bike routes and anything beats a job on the trainer! Where do you guys normally go?
