Our First Regatta!

North Coast Gig League – Torridge

Portishead Gig Club attended its first regatta earlier this month. Hosted by Torridge Pilot Gig Club on the North Devon coast at Appledore, as part of the North Coast Gig League. New members from Portishead Gig Club had a baptism into the world of gig racing in the pouring rain. Thanks to Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club for the loan of their gig Barum Bobby and also for the second hand oars!
PPGC thoroughly enjoyed themselves, getting stuck in, giving it their all and cheering on crews in the challenging weather conditions.
Thank you also to Clevedon Pilot Gig Club who helped fill empty seats in some of the races, providing expert experience for our novice crews to get them around the course.
Despite the weather the day was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended.
Well done PPGC!
