Rainer has conquered a stage of the Tour of Estonia and has moved onto the CTC too by being the top ranking individual team mate this month, followed by Mark, Ric and Bill who submitted extremely close times. A big shout out goes to Bill as he is our highest ranking lightweight male. Well done.
Karyn is our top ranking female again this month with a punchy pace of 1.55. Excellent form Karyn, keep up the brilliant work!

Nice work team mates.
Let's aim to get three boats floated in the August challenge.
Join us for Rote 87's Summer Slope challenge:

Row 1500 m, 1000 m, 500 m with 3 minutes rest between each.
Record your total time for the 3000 metres not including the 6 minutes rest.
Standard rules for interval starts. No other restrictions.

What have you been doing to conquer erging in the hot weather for those who are experiencing this unusually hot summer?

For those ETT'ers who are in the midst of winter what do you to make it onto the erg when you'd rather be chilling out in front of the fire?

Boat two nearly floated in July CTC

We just need one female rower to enter a time for this month's CTC to float boat number two.
I am going to wait until next week to see if my knee is up to the intense 10 x 1 minute intervals, but there must be another lovely female ETT'er willing to give this baby a go!?

It looks like Mark and Ric are back erging out their friendly rivalry on the C2. Great to see such great entries lads!
Well done on so many brilliant metres ETT'ers. There are 11 more days left in July to make a difference.

Boat one floated for July CTC

Happy belated Independence Day to our American team mates. I bet those fireworks were great!


Talking of fireworks, our very own little ETT fire-crackers have floated boat one in this months Cross Team Challenge. Excellent work folks, you have really thrown the gauntlet down here... some blistering hot entries, especially from our very own lightweight Rob D. I think your C2 was smoking hot after your speedy session Rob.

Are any of you following the Tour de France this year?

The Grand Depart started in my home county of West Yorkshire today. I'm looking forward to the journey through the UK including stage three that finishes on the Mall in London (unfortunately I will be at work so will miss all the action).

July CTC

How's things ETT'ers. It has been a while... hope you are all OK and enjoying yourselves.

The July Cross Team Challenge is a cheeky little interval session set by the Independents.
Row 10 sets of one minute with one minute rests inbetween. Start from a static flywheel and the rest can be rolling starts.

Good luck everyone.

With only a few teams left in the World Cup how did your team fair?
