Exmouth Gig Rowing Club open day

Exmouth Gig Rowing Club held an open day in conjunction with the RNLI at Exmouth over the weekend. The idea was to raise the profile of gig rowing and recruit new members to the club. Here are some photos from Saturday along with a link to a fuller photo set.

The open day continues today down at the Lifeboat Station if you are interested.
