Do you have the stamina, the grit, and the best crew to win the gruelling 9 mile two bridges gig race?
Appledore Gig Club is pleased to invite you to join us for the annual two bridges gig race on 12th September 2010.
The course is 9 miles and starts from Bideford New Bridge where the men will row down the Torridge River, then turn into and row up the Taw river estuary to the finish line at Barnstaple New Bridge. Once completed we will have a change round to the ladies who will row the course back from Barnstaple New Bridge to Appledore Quay, allow 1.5hrs.
Boats to arrive in Appledore from 7.30am, coxes meeting 8.15am and the race starts at 9.00am.
Refreshments in the Seagate Inn when the racing has finished.
We are all very much looking forward to it and hope to see you there.
All the best.
John Nickell. Events organiser.
