JL t-shirts by Erica - Tue 27th Sep 2005, 10:02pm
Has anyone else seen the JL t-shirts that say "ROW FOR PEDRO" on the front and "Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills... feathering skills... catching skills... jumpies skills" on the back?

See the JL page .

Two (or three) queries:

1. Why Pedro? Is this really random or am I missing something? Is it a quote?

2. What are jumpies?

(3. Should I buy one, for $15, or would this jinx my relationship?!?) (7 replies...)
Relative boat speeds by speedy gonzales - Tue 20th Sep 2005, 4:14pm
I was wondering if anyone knows of a reliable table comparing some kind of average boat speed/gold medal times, or anything really to give an idea of relative boat speeds across ALL the different classes. It's very hard to find any info on non-olympic classes, e.g coxed fours, and how they compare, speed wise to other boats. And/or can people offer opinions on this? Is a women's coxed four, for example going to be faster or slower than a women's pair? Women's eights and men's singles? (6 replies...)

I sent an email to the list this morning, and I haven't yet received it. Can anyone who is also a member of said list confirm that it isn't working please. Cheers. (17 replies...)

Bow tie? by Martin - Thu 23rd Jun 2005, 10:31pm
Have discovered I have a spare FaT bow tie. Anyone currently rowing want one? Needs a little bit of a clean and perhaps an iron (can you iron silk?), but is essentially fit for purpose. (9 replies...)

Bumps Starts for W1, M2, M1 by Bryn - Tue 21st Jun 2005, 6:25pm
Marshalling opposite the Plough on Friday gave me the opportunity to take some videos of practice starts for the FaT crews in the top Mays divisions. They are here:


When I get some more webspace I might put up a video of the Arrows VIII for comedy value...

Website groups overload by Martin - Sat 4th Jun 2005, 11:59pm
There is a need to purge lots of old and unused groups from the website.

I've put together a list of groups I think we should ditch, can everyone let me know which of the following should be kept.

Some older members may object to some of these, but I reckon that many are used so infrequently now that it would be much better, for current members, to kind of start afresh...

Tide Tables on the BBC by jmg - Fri 27th May 2005, 9:10am
In addition to the controversial new TV forecasts, the BBC seem to have made some quite positive changes to their weather website, including tide tables. Not being a regular on the tideway, I don't know whether this is well known and understood, but I wonder if anyone can explain reasonably simply why the shape of the curve changes so dramatically as you work your way downstream from 'Richmond' Lock to Kew, Hammersmith etc etc etc etc? Also, what effect if any does this have on the stream, particularly where on the curve would you expect the strongest stream? (4 replies...)
