World Plastic Gig Championships - Sandy Cove, Newlyn
We drove down the road towards Newlyn to park and as we arrived the gigs were making their way to the start for the first race. These "plastic" gigs are the modern training gigs that many clubs now have - many of the wooden racing ones have already been shipped to Scilly ready for the World Pilot Gig Championships in early May
Then back they came - moving much faster with one of the Mount's Bay gigs close to the front

Some of the crowd on the beach at Sandy Cove - assume it did have sand at one time !
A quick changeover and back went the gigs for the next race - with Shearwater II further over towards The Mount
Back they came with Mount's Bay gig Breeze at the front

Double fly-past by a Skybus on a scenic tour - or was it a spying mission before the World Pilot Gig Championships over on Scilly in early May
