A viewer sent in some photos of the Ladies practicing, thanks for that, hope you enjoyed it Peter. Thanks to Peter Suddaby for the 2 photos he emailed us (Greg July 2008)

Hi Greg, I am glad to hear from you, thanks for replying. I was hoping my humorous titles hadn't upset you all! I know gig racing is a serious competitive sport, and perhaps it was a bit unfair of me to take snaps of the ladies before they had got organised. Of course, once they were into their 'stride' they were soon a speck on the horizon.
I was really pleased to be there, and especially as it was ladies training. It must take a lot of courage to take a gig out on the "high seas" and I had assumed before that it was just a men-only sport.
I hope your seasons' events are going well. Kind regards, Peter

Cadgwith Gig Club have had one of our trailers stolen. This was the first ever gig trailer built by Lizard Trailers for Buller. The trailer was not in the most accessible place and a lot of building material had to be moved and the trailer manoeuvered in a tight space to remove it.

PLEASE be aware that any information would be appreciated by the club and also clubs need to be aware that trailers are being stolen, this is the second trailer stolen in recent years.
