Hey chaps. Anyone ever heard of these ?

Well my work here is entering a boat here in June I believe. Every year we have a big rowing competition with these boats that hold a good 23 people, and the races begin.

Since my co-workers know Im training for the Marines, they have nominated me as the captain. Should be good fun, and some intense practices. Funny thing is I work for a computer firm, 90% of the people are overweight, so, with that in mind, I know we are going to get beaten, BAD, but still all in good fun. Im *text deleted* run these civvies through some tough beastings :D. I'll keep ya up to date with some pictures and stuff.

Yes I did one of these a couple of years ago for charity.

Problem was I went out on the piss the night before and had a horrible hangover (what else do you expect on a Sunday morning).We won all our races but nearly rolled the boat on the second race-didnt help that half our boat were 18st doormen..the boat was quite low in the water..ha ha

Overall its a good laugh and if you can all get in time with the rowing youre laughing...or you get bashed knuckles
