2010-12 Absence

Unfortunately, I'm not in Scilly this year to do my normal Gig Championship coverage. I'll still try to get the full results from the Saturday's first race and Sunday's final positions up before everyone else, but there will not be any of my own pictures or news this year.

Radio Scilly will being doing audio coverage, and BBC Cornwall are there as always.

Sailing race

The sailing race took place on Monday morning with a reasonable wind powering the gigs.

The Helford was the first to cross the startline, followed closely by the Royal. The Fly and Nornour came later, the Slippen being the last to start. The Nornour overtook the Helford only to loose its lead during a tack. The Nornour eventually won the race with a considerable lead over the Helford and Royal.

Polvarth Ladies and Warrior Men become new champions


After coming third last year, the Roseland's Polvarth ladies came back determined this year to beat the previous champions, Falmouth. After a photo finish, it was determined that the Polvarth beat the Famlouth's Irene Too 'by their fender'. Kensa finished third.


Second last year, Par Bay's Warrior returned strong and beat the Miller's Daughter by a length to become the new champions, taking the trophy from Mount's Bay, who finished fifth? this year.

We'll bring you more detail after the award ceremony, which started at 18.00. There are videos and pictures to be uploaded over the next week.
