Did they do the entire race like that?
I bet the ride would be interesting like that!!
That was the finish line conga
I've got the pirate monaco and shorts on (they are the old style shorts though) the new ones are much nicer but the same design
Is that Kanga wearing Hot pants at the back??...they look very short.
you don't want to look any of that lot
Don't forget that the monaco is a different fit from the cycle tops/jackets. Rafi's link expains it a bit more.
Cycle tops & jackets = snug but nice. Monaco = Matt Lucas only gay in the village
Ok, I'm loving the whole pirate thing and I want in ... I'd love to do the meeting and cheering stuff, but restricted with family commitments at the moment, but they're getting older by the day ...!
Deffo IM at some point, and Ripon Tri (Oly) in July (first). So would certainly be interested in a bit of the clingy, fly-attracting yellow ... but can't quite match the list to the website.
The website talks about 'Elite', 'Performance - Delfino' and 'Sport', but on here there are cycle tops, jackets, gilets, tanks and monacos. I'm on a steep learning curve here - I know what OW and OP and Oly is now, but haven't mastered the whole clothing dialect yet.
Excuse me for being a numpty and a bit particular about styles, but I'm no model and rarely buy without trying - especially if it isn't going to leave much to the imagination as with lycra.
Can someone advise about which Louis Garneau items these are, please?
Schmunkee - thanks for sorting out kit for everyone. I've read the posts about initiations / introductions / open doors and the like, and so now I've introduced myself - [declares "aaarrgh" in a pilate tone ....]
Monaco = sleeveless tri-top, cycle top and cycle jacket speak for themselves and Tanks are what fish live in.
Your time seems restrcited but if you want to try on the kit you need to find a race with Pirates in and ask to try. Although Evans have started stocking LG kit so trying a bike top there for size is an option.
Oh yes and what is a pilate tone?.......

Its obvious ... saying 'Aaargh' is good for your core
I feel I should apologise for sending this thread off on a tangent for the last few pages.
I realise I'm taking my life in my hands here, but I've added my name to the list so now I'm just going to hide in a corner and pray that I've not screwed it up.

This is from about 5 pages back....but don't worry, I think Schmunkee is too busy having a nervous breakdown over her Pirate PArty list on another thread!!
*whispers from the corner*
M girls tank top please.
Hiya....please may I order a Pirates Race Vest - is that a Gilet or Monaco - is the monaco a tee shirt ? ...........I posted some notes a few weeks ago and was advised to offer thorntons - have got 2 triathlons coming up and have saved up to buy some thorntons as well - in case these are needed to barter with !!??
