EARLIER this month saw the first regatta in the new Tamar Winter League.

Ten pilot gig crews from both sides of the Tamar will be competing in five races. The first to host the event were Tamar and Tavy Gig Club based at Weir Quay who had a great opportunity to show off their new clubhouse.

The weather was kind with great conditions on the water with very little wind or rain. Tamar and Tavy started the day off perfectly by winning the first race with the ladies’ A crews and maintained good results throughout including a third for the men’s A, second for the ladies’ veterans and another first for the men’s veterans, ending with an overall score of third for the club as they look forward to the next racing in January.
