13th April 2019 saw the arrival of our new Rowing boats. These mini-Gig Boats were built by Skur Boats and will hopefully lead to us having a full size Gig in the future. In the meantime we can all become more competent rowers and fitter, hopefully a slightly formal local racing league will get going.
Our first sea trials saw club rowers from 18-71 years of age trying out the boats under safe supervision by members of Ilfracombe Pilot Gig Club and the watchful eye of the Crew of Severn Seeker safety boat on loan from KML (as was all the safety kit until we can afford our own, thanks again KML).
Our next tester sessions are 19th and 20th April, everyone welcome, come and have a go, muster at 1830hrs at The Dinghy Park in Lynmouth.
This years Regatta and Maritime Festival will be held over 3 days, 13-15th June 2019. We will be holding races and entertainment every evening with a full day of nautical capers on Saturday 15th. More details to come as they are confirmed.
