Tamar & Tavy Gig Club had another successful weekend of racing, entering a Ladies A, Mens A and Mens Super-vets team at the Salcombe Regatta on Sunday 23rd June. The Ladies A team, formed of Lynn Renton, Charity Philips, Heidi Brodribb, Katie Turner, Julie Rendle and Julie Eastaugh and coxed by Jo Cameron battled tough winds, a strong tide and large swells in their group race. They had a fantastic start, immediately pulling away from the pack, and some brilliant coxing from Jo Cameron brought them around the course holding their position and coming home in first place. An amazing result, and brilliant rowing from all!
The Men’s A team, formed of David Auborn, Ian King, Simon Howes, Peter Clarke, Matt Pinney and Euan Roxborough rowed strongly, and also had a great race, with some fantastic coxing from Mike Vosper in challenging conditions. The Men’s Supervets then raced on, with some of the A team digging deep and rowing again in this race. The team consisted of David Auborn, Rob Mackintosh-Smith, Peter Clarke, Simon Howes, Alastair Monteath and Mike Vosper. The team had to battle wind and tide, but some hard rowing and determination and some great coxing from Tricia Stewart bought them to the strong finish.
Thanks go to all involved for another brilliant day of rowing and some great Tamar & Tavy team spirit.
