Helford Gig Club :: Regatta day :: Results

Report:  Much like Helford’s waterborne roving umpires, a good rough lump in the river made for some great racing today as Helford Gig Club ran it’s Gig Regatta day.  A moderate easterly breeze and the ebb tide set up a steep chop that rowers battled into on the first leg which took them out towards the river mouth before turning the three kite marks and runing back to a finish off the beach. Starting ran with a black and yellow flag at 2 minutes to go, changing to a red one with 1 minute (and anyone over the line to be DSQd). It worked nicely and allowed any cox with a watch to count down as well – although positioning the gig on the line into a headwind also helped the line up. Full report, pics and results to follow. Toby;)
