As usual Caradon Gig Club delivered a fantastic well organized days racing at the annual Mixed Championships. The venue, Saltash on the bank of the River Tamar made from some interesting racing as crews flew down the first leg to the first mark with the flooding tide. With the turns all within 1 mintue of each other, crews didn’t really have much scope for overtakes around them and just followed around single file, with a few exceptions ;).
The first round start on time with the juniors semi-finals and the mixed quarter finals all done by 11.30am. With a quick break, the plate semi’s got under way and then the mixed semi’s. Followed by a 45 min lunch break, the three finals started with Coverack taking victory in the Junior Mixed.
