Cougie - It was the first time in 22 years that they had to cancel the swim at Windsor, so its pretty unlikely for Henley, but always possible I guess.

as Raf says, yes it's possible they could cancel the swim but it's unlikely we'll get 2 years like this!  (crosses fingers).   the Thames is wider up at Henley so any current would be slower which will help.  

the other problem at Windsor was also water quality - lots of field wash off so loads of debris and of course livestock "manure" which doesn't help.   water quality is an important thing that's also taken into account - a few swims have been cancelled in the past due quality issues caused be faecal matter or blue-green algae.

A nice flat bike and lovely sun 

Vichy was in the 40's last year and a non wetsuit swim.  Road quality is also not that great apparently so bike isnt as fast as profile suggests

I quite fancy abroad again next year. Somehow this UK long distance racing isnt as exciting as a sunnier european trip.

This very British weather is hardening my resolve to go abroad next summer. Still fancy Vichy. Even if the swim's Speedos-only. Will just have to learn to swim a little better !

Hello *waves to peeps that kn0ow me and those that don't*

Just wandering from the world of Fetch cos I haven't said Hi to my loverly pirate mates for ages.

Really want to get back to tri's again.

Any reccommendations for a sept/oct sprint/oly for this year?

What's this Henly one you're talking about for next. My Pirate kit is in need of some use!!

Sioux - Fleetwood, end of september. Sprint, closed roads and good value at £25

other than that, Nantwich is fairly close to you.

£25!!!! I'll have a look at Fleetwood then.

Got exams on the 6th Sept so written any chance of summer races off.

Just about fitting training in round the studying/family/work by doing most of my shifts at weekends

..... just to remind people this will be the UK event and I am told will also have a half IM option for those not ready but will be a great way to join in!

Also if you're not already part of the Fatman to Ironman thread and considering breaking your IM cherry next year, come over and join the rest of us for the best worst year of our lives

Have entered the the Henley Half IM this year determined to get my Thames swim in after Windsor was cancelled.

The only problem I can see with this event is that it is so relatively late in the year. I would much prefer an earlier IM in 2013 (just not sure I can face Lanza as a sea swim is not my fav)

I dont mind Lanza as a holiday - but for me its too early in the season. The lakes are too chilly for proper training in time for getting ready for Lanza. Henley lets us have the whole summer to practice OW. Which is nice.

Kit numbers are picking up nicely!

After thinking about this at the weekend, I am going to close the order book after IMWales ie end of September.  This means that the order will likely be placed with LG towards the end of the year, with delivery around Feb/March. 

It will be the last order before Lanza

To lazy to read all the way back so is Henley gonna be THE pirate event for those not fortunate enough to go to Lanza?
Not interested in doing it but would love to come and support if it is
