This year’s 3 Rivers Race organised by Caradon Gig Club saw a record number of entrants and encouraging results for FMPGC crews, going into the start of a new season’s racing. In cold, but relatively calm conditions (compared to recent years!), the top crews finished the slightly updated course in just under 50 minutes.
LA & MA rowed Vilt in her first ever races and both finished 5th overall out of around 50 boats, putting the club 5th in the combined A crew club rankings. Men’s A result was the best in the club’s history at this event and Ladies A equalled the club’s best ever performance (from last year).
LB and MB rowed a newly refurbished Penarrow and came 21st and 18th respectively. MB particularly enjoyed storming through the fleet and overtaking lots of crews from the heats above them! Everyone had a great day’s rowing and appreciated all the non-rowers who came along to support.
