Where there's a will...

Posted: 29/07/2015 at 16:45

The relevant bit of legislation here is the  Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975  which allows dependents to make a claim against the estate regardless of the contents of the will.

In fact, I'd be interested to know if the three charities stated have any case to try and fight back.  I don't expect they'd waste their funds doing so but, in my opinion, they should.

If I've read the background correctly, this particular appeal was limited to quantum i.e. the amount of money that the daughter could claim.  The charities have applied for leave to appeal the other judgment (whether any award was correct) to the supreme court but have been refused.

Triathlon tribelts

As Symes says, tribelts are all much the same in my experience. But sometimes I leave it clipped up, step into it, and pull it up round my middle, which can be quicker. Might be worth trying that way?


I was officiating at a junior aquathlon the other weekend and saw a number of competitors doing the step into and pull up.  Fine if the number is correct way up, but if they do need to correct it then the initial instinct is to reverse original action, flip number and then step back in.  Which looked to be slower than put belt on and fasten.  But, as Flyers says worth having a play with.

IIRC correctly, Fat Buddha was quoting on another thread that the ban non numbers under wetsuits is a WTC rather than a BTF rule.  I haven't got my rulebook to hand for the moment. 

Outlaw Bike Feedstation 26 July 2015

Top work by the bacon butty crew- thank you very much indeed.

I also received a couple of compliments on the feed station as I was wandering back and forth to the finish line in my somewhat inconspicuous gilet.  While I didn't have moisture condensing in the car on the way back, the relative humidity outside the car is decidedly lower than inside thanks to the huge pile of damp kit plus tent.  Must throw it all in the washing machine before it festers.

Where for a first half ironman?

Dublin 70.3?  Early August so some summer training possible.

Do you specifically want a WTC Ironman 70.3 or any old middle distance event?  Vitruvian would fit the bill nicely (late season, close to Staffs), but it's non WTC and insanely popular.

There's also a decent fish and chippie (or there was last year) between the campsite and the pub - Lady Bay Fish and Chips.
