TWO BRIDGES GIG RACE MARCH 15th 2008
Incessant rain may have dampened the spirits of the spectators but our 2nd annual 'Two Bridges Gig Race' in conjunction with Appledore Gig Club was far from dull for the teams who fought it out from Bideford to Barnstaple bridges and back. 'Young Bristol' won a gruelling men's race with Torridge Ladies winning the reverse race. Organisers Len White & Denise Morrish (soon to be married we understand!) of the Appledore Club and our own Eddie Dymond praised the tired rowers for their efforts in the toughest of conditions and are already planning for next year's race.
