Great River Race

Flushing & Mylor Pilot Gig Club entered all 3 of its gigs into this year’s Great River Race on the River Thames in London. A record number of gigs took part this year (an 1/8th of the whole fleet apparently) and our club boats finished in the following times out of a total of 339 craft: Pinnacle (61st) in 02:41:23, Trefusis (74th) in 02:44:32 and Penarrow (93rd) in 02:49:08. Justin Dodge, rowing in Pinnacle with a mixed crew of LA, MB & MA rowers said “we had a really great time in London…We were really pleased with finishing 9th out of all the gigs who attended.” 24 members of the club travelled up to row or cox and many others went along to support.
