Record Entry for Hayle U14s Championships
Hayle Gig Club hosted its annual U14s championships in glorious sunshine recently. The event was held at the sheltered Copperhouse Pool in Hayle and was supported by the RNLI who provided safety boats for the day.
Of the 28 mixed crews that entered Coverack emerged victorious following a competitive round robin format, with Caradon and Fowey also fielding strong crews.
Cadgwith were also stand-out performers, proving that the culture of gig rowing in their tiny cove is alive and well, fielding as they did 3 crews in the plate race final.
“We’re very proud to host the U14s champ’s for the next generation of gig rowers,” said Rob Pring, Chairman of Hayle Gig Club. “We’re very lucky to have such a safe venue for holding junior events and we’re very pleased to see so many entries, the furthest away being Langstone Cutters.”
