Gig Championship at Hayle 2008,
The Championship, hosted superbly by Hayle Rowing Club on Saturday 2nd August, took place as usual on the Copperhouse Pool in bright conditions – though with a steady headwind on the racecourse.
24 crews Clubs from clubs all over the south west entered, with the final three crews having raced a total of five races, each on average just over 4 minutes in duration.
The Final proved to be an exciting match of concentration, technique and power between Cadgwith in the 1987 gig William Peters, and Helford in Fly (built 1993) with the crews neck and neck half way down. Both crews had won all their previous heats. One mistake, like a ‘crab’ or a footrest coming loose would have cost half a length. However it was Cadgwith who slowly pulled away to win the 2008 Open County Gig Championships.
The crew were : stroke : Harry Preston; second stroke : Charlie Samuel; Sam Davies; James Fitzsimmons; Wil Drysdale; bow : Ollie Williams. The Cox and Coach was Jeb Preston
The Cadgwith ‘B’ crew (called Cadgwith ‘2’ at the Champs ) did really well getting through to the second round. For many of them it was there first taste of racing.
So this was a brilliant effect, WELL DONE to : Heydon Dark, Paul Preston, Tommy Phillips, Robbie Green, Jo Davies , Jake Woodley, and Paddy Alfrey Cryan.
