Thanks to Trevor for this report.
We had some light rain during the morning and whilst the gigs arrived but the rain tailed off just prior to the coxes meeting and the sea conditions were just perfect for rowing.
We ended up with 13 clubs attending and we were particularly impressed to see the distance clubs had travelled for our event and in particular Salcombe and Paignton.
The coxes meeting started at 1.00p.m. and the last gig went over the finishing line in the last race of the day (Veterans) at 4.38p.m. so well done one and all.
The racing during the afternoon was very exciting with some great competition going on all over the field.
Our sincere thanks go out to Peter Fisher (Starter), Michael Williams, John Lentil Adam Anderson and the Devoran and Rock clubs for also helping out (Umpires) and for giving up their time so freely.
May we once again thank all those clubs who attending our event and trust you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2010.
