STIL ... absolutely, and there wil always be a pirate presence at IMUK and IMW and all the other places that we would like to go & seeHenley is quite nice .. well, its not Bolton
.... i'm hoping Bolton is better than it looks/sounds but i plan to rise from the dead in time to join in the Henley festivties as a full fledged pirate
I've been to Bolton, in fact my family come from there. Gastank, I'd say that you shouldn't hold up your hopes. It's famous for the being the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian times, years of neglect, and the upsurgent home of the BNP. (Or is that Oldham?).
The only two things I remember about Henley are that they don't do Tri when it's peak season, because they're rowing. And the race reports from the tri had all the racers hanging onto the pontoon trying not to get swept down the Thames at the start.
But what do I know?
Personally, I'm eyeballing IM Wales. 2013.
Gastank - all I can say about Bolton is the Landlord form local is from there, he raves about it, he's a huge Bolton football fan, he was the first person ever to get married at the Reebok (football stadium) - he wouldn't have a word said about the place, thinks its great, the dog's bolloxs.......but he lives down here, five miles from Henley....speaks for itself really
There's another sign! I found a holiday book in our house, open at Lanzarote.
Stick to Wales Blisters, that gives you two summers and one winter to get ready !
Can I officially retire before I start?
I will be spectating at Vichy. Will help with a feed station as long as du vin and du pain is okay.
Ooooh, it's officially Henley now

Most definitely OC
I am thinking Lanza if I do Ironman next year. The problem (for me) with a late summer race is that you lose all of the social opportunities that come with summer because of training.
That said though I like the idea of Lanza and Henley , so do my credit card suppliers!

Are we having a new pirate award for turning up to both championship races. If so, how about the longest joint time gets the aard
I have a feeling that award may be mine already
Just had another look at the race information for Challenge Vichy. The bike profile is fantastic - looks like a sharp climb followed by 90k rolling downhill, and repeat! And it's the weekend of my 40th birthday.......and it's in France.
And I think there's a relay for anyone having a year off the long stuff. **wheedle**
and it will be warm
Henley in September is not very appealing weather wise
