Calmer conditions than the 2012 wind and wave marathon. Well run and well marshalled, Caradon Gig Club’s 3 Rivers Race expanded this year to a record breaking 52 crews in what is now the premier event kicking off the pilot gig racing circuit.
Only one thing – toilets. Can we have access to some more – even if it means a per-crew or per-rower entry fee?
Graphs show the percentage a crew was behind the winning crew…
Falmouth and Caradon ladies A crews dominated their fleet with strong performances putting them 5% clear of the 3rd place Looe crew. Caradon have closed the gap to Falmouth compared to last year. The next 5% covers 11 crews so points to very strong competition as the season progresses.
The men’s fleet results show a more even progression of performance. Good to see an early season win from Looe A who are shaping up nicely to challenge for the WPGC title in a couple of month’s time. Falmouth remain an unknown quantity as their A crew was not able to attend at full strength. Caradon have some selection headaches with their men’s vets and A crews taking the 2nd and 3rd places respectively.
