Bank holiday gigging

Freshly back from the World Championships in the Scilly Islands. Our local Gig club had their annual regatta yesterday. Each year this seems to grow and yesterday I counted something like 12 gigs in attendance.

And it was almost the perfect activity for a start to the holiday. The comings and goings of the Gigs in amongst the holiday makers made for a fine spectacle.

Although not the sunniest day of the year, the afternoon brightened up and showed the brightly coloured Gigs off to perfection.

Meanwhile the services of Swanage Lifeboat remained uncalled for. Just as we like it!
