Thank you to Jeremy from Ilfracombe Gig Club for this report …

On August the 29th Ilfracombe Pilot Gig Club held their first regatta. Despite strong winds and a very lumpy sea everyone had a great time. The course was shortened due to the sea conditions so the races were about 1 mile in length. The rowers had to work very hard to fight against the waves, and they definitely won the battle!

The Ilfracombe Men’s A didn’t do too well but the Men’s B won their first ever race! It was Ilfracombes’ first ever race win in a regatta and much celebration followed! Well done boys! The mixed team came a close fifth after Weymouth, the team really worked hard to try and edge past. It was practically a photo finish!

Here you can see all the boats lining up for the first race. These crews are the Ladies B teams, Weymouth – the 2 green boats – came first and third, Paignton – yellow and blue – came second. Ilfracombe ladies put in a good show with all three teams coming fourth in their races.  It was the first outing for the ladies Vets team.
