A Great Weekend :: Thank you for your support

1312 0

Weather conditions could not have been better for this weekends event in Falmouth.

The event kicked off at 1030 with the start of the Tribute event, all races went off well in a moderate offshore wind.  This was the first race since the new CPGA rules have been introduced. Results to follow when we get them in the meantime photo of the results board below.

The decision was made to start the juniors in one start which caused a disadvantage to the teams furthest away from the beach.  In hindsight the race should have been started in two heats and the organizers apologise for any crews this affected.

The first GigRower Championships then took place with a series of straight sprint races down the shore line back to the  beach. The aim of these sprints was to try a new format of racing using a a series of heats to give all crews that enter at least 2 chances to makes the final.  The racing went well and saw a tight final in both the mens and ladies with Falmouth winning the ladies and Caradon the mens.

We would like to thank all clubs that attended for their support, particularly those who stayed for the sprint races.

Thanks to Jowan for these pics.

    Cadgwith were only there for tribute event – that was well organised and ran smoothly – thanks for good day’s racing.

    Confusion over race order in the week before wasn’t entirely helpful, as people had made plans based on gigrower website info of ladies then mens, rather than vice versa as turned out to be. Luckily everyone could still make it

    Best wishes
