Capt’n Charles, Test Pilot, Crash Test Chucky

The Capt’n does nothing by halves. When he sees something shiny, he jumps in, feet first, ready for action. So it was when he joined the TriHards in late 2008, The Capt’n was not content with starting off with an “easy” novice course; no, he had to dive straight in for the classic; achieving tremendous results! In fact, so enamoured was the Capt’n with adventure racing after his first few events, that he decided to create his own adventure racing team. And, in usual Capt’n fashion-we’re not talking about gathering a few like-minded racers under one banner-he actually made his own team, consisting entirely of his progeny! (No doubt we’ll see the team in the 2009-2010 season!)

The Capt’n attacks all things with such gusto; if he were a resource in Microsoft Project (his least favourite compulsory management tool), the poor application would explode trying to compute where the time comes from such that he may be utilised at 200%. In between races, the Capt’n trains with the TriHards, coaches a soccer team, rides his motorbike, is the sexy husband to Mrs Capt’n, holds down a full-time managerial job and is busy being a father to three girls (no doubt soon he’ll take up learning to shoot, for when his girls reach their teens!)

Favourite Sayings: “What, that little jump?”, “That’s easy, watch this!”, “Outstanding!!!”
