Deeply impressive but try as I might the only lesson I have learnt from these videos is how much weight I need to lose. Comfy once I'm in though :-)

Here is my contribution.... Timing is done from the first moment I touched the door and stopped after the door is completely closed (I have counted in Final Cut Pro so very accurate ;) )

 

Who can beat me?

We will have a few Esprit's together on Sunday so we will see what we can do.

I think we're all still working out how on earth we're ever going to beat Coen's time!

 

He is the Usain Bolt of the In and Out challenge.

 

I definitely can't beat that time but I might just know a man who could give it a go...

So where is your video jimi?

We have 7 Esprit's gathering on Sunday so might persuade a few to try?

We might even attempt a relay event!

Watch this space.

I might just give it a go, never tried to get in and out of the esprit quickly before, it will probably end in pain.

AndrewC's dad Alastair 32.68secs. I only hope I can get in and out of my Esprit when I reach Alastairs age. Well done for being a great sport. Oh and remember Alastair has two replacement hips!
