It was a beautiful June evening as we welcomed St Columb Young Farmers to the club and invited them to swap tractor for gig and have a go at learning to row.
After a safety briefing and background to the heritage of the gig club in Padstow, we were ready to take to the water. With a superb turnout, we launched both Dasher and Teazer, our training boats, and managed to take all 24 young farmers out for a half hour row and short race back into the harbour. It wasn’t long before we realised the potential of many of the novices so will certainly be encouraging them to come again. A great night had by all.
We look forward to welcoming more of the Cornwall Young Farmers to the club soon.
