A teams row well but Ilfracombe Ladies Veterans come up trumps
Ilfracombe gig crews did well at the Lyme Regis regatta, rowing sprint style races last Saturday.
The Ladies Veterans led the way claiming first place by a large distance from their closest rivals - an incredible feat for a sprint race.
Ilfracombe’s A teams also did well, with both Mens and Womens A coming second in their races.
The crews had to battle with tide and wind, which meant coxes had to predict waves to avoid being swept off course.
The races were set over 1.16 nautical miles with heats, semi-finals and finals.
