1206 0

Once again Falmouth Gig Club‘s dominant Ladies Section stormed to victory in an exhilarating ladies final. Cadgwith Gig Club’s reputable juniors showed their strength once again by crossing the line convincingly in front to be named Newquay Under 16 champions 2010.




Day Two

With a delayed start once again due to confusion about the race order, race 5 of the juniors started the days proceedings. A grey and miserable start left crews very enthused about getting on the water. After the juniors first round had finished on the shorter course, the Ladies Quarter Finals took place. Flat conditions this morning meant no blame could be placed on the sea and weather. So crews knocked out at this stage were so fairly. After a swift lunch break, the juniors and ladies semi’s also left crews just narrowly missing out on the iconic 6 boats of the Newquay Final.

The Finals

Ladies – took to the water with more interesting weather conditions. A bigger ground sea rolling in and a stiff Southerly wind made the for a nasty wind chop. After a frantic start with crews not behaving, they were underway. Falmouth A once again making it look easy, by easing their lead all the way round the course. Charlestown (2nd), Caradon (3rd) & Mount’s Bay (4th) had a close sprint down the last leg with each boat having an overlap.
