Friday's weather was looking rather poor, though forecasts said it was supposed to improve. Luckily, it did, and the veteran's races, which grow in popularity each year, took place underneath a wonderful Scillonian sunset.
The ladies' race started first. First and second across the line were disqualified due to a false start. The race was technically won by the Helford crew in their new gig, the Pedn Billy. Kerens, now owned by Rock, came second and the local Tregarthen's crew came third.
In the mens' race, Newquay's Hope came a strong first after managing to pull away from their main competition from Roseland's Polvarth. See our gallery for images from The Garrison (around 3/4 way).
We have updated our database with the list of gigs supposed to compete this year.
More detailed results can be found in the gallery (look for photos of the scoreboard). Full results will be added to our database towards the end of the weekend.
