Varsity Farce

Paddling manfully past the scuppered rig to their right at the recent adventure race on 24 March, Tango & Cash re-create the magic of the 1984 Varsity Boat Race (during which, for those of you with patchy university rowing knowledge, Oxford went on to win after Cambridge crashed into a barge and sank).

Thanks to Mickey Regan for this fine snap, which neatly sums up the pair's single-minded focus, clockwork co-ordination, ruthless determination, and bodies-on-the-line attitude - a sure recipe for success.

Always the Bridesmaid, Never the Bride

Tango & Cash fought the good fight once again at Baronscourt, County Tyrone, on 24 March, in the third race of the six-race adventure race series, run by Causeway Coast Adventure Racing.

Despite a strict diet of Pepperami and Irn Bru in the weeks running up the race, alas, any chance of a victory was scuppered by just not being quick enough round the course, and the boys dragged their limp carcasses over the line for an ultimate joint second place - a job well done.
