YARRRGGH!! Monty, 'twas I at Ellesmere and I have to heartily agree that my Yarrgh was a little weak. In my defence it was both my first Tri as a consequence my first time out in Pirate Colours. Your 'Go Pirate' took me a little by surprise as I was deep in concentration and it took a few seconds to summon the appropriate repose. Which was as probably to little to late.
As you can see from the hail above I have been practising my war cry and I find the best time to do this is in front of the mirror while waxing my legs. Good time to shout YaarrGh !! as you rip the strips off.
