ILFRACOMBE Ladies A made their mark at the Newquay County Gig Championships - an event which drew crews from all over the UK and from Holland.

In the Ladies and Junior events over the weekend Nell Trotter, Lisa Furborough, Sarah Barclay, Mandy Turner, Zoe Green and Julie Gordge came through their opening two heats both in third place, the only North Devon crew to reach this level, before finishing 28th out of 96 crews overall.

This was a great result in only their second season, improving 50 places on their first year's effort.

The Ilfracombe B team came a respectable fifth in their heat, as did their juniors the following day.
