Exmouth Gig Rowing Club has managed to acquire a new gig boat – we now have two.
Yesterday we launched our new boat – Avocet. Here are a few pictures of the launch day – see here for my photo gallery from the day.
Here is the new boat before it has been named and blessed on the beach at Exmouth
Here is the Vicar James Hutchings blessing the new gig with holy water

Ben and Carrie – the driving forces behind the Exmouth Gig Club – without them we wouldn’t exist!

It was a lovely sunny day with a blue sky and a chill wind at Exmouth yesterday but nevertheless lots of people out and about.
Clouds bubbling in the background
Across the Exe estuary
Out to sea
Lots of dogs on the beach
Down to Orcombe Point
