As well as going birding on the Isles of Scilly I am here for the gig rowing in the 2016 World Gig Rowing Championships!
Racing in the chop! To be honest that was a flat bit of water – if only it had all been like that. But… it was much better than our trials and tribulations of last year – see here.
Today and tomorrow I am rowing for Boscastle and Crackington Gig Rowing Club in their boat Rival. I had only intended to row for Exmouth – my own club, in the Vet’s Race but Boscastle and Crackington were a man short – as I have lots of family connections with Crackington it seemed like a good idea on Thursday to volunteer for them …. time will tell.
