Lyme Regis Regatta

Following visits to Appledore, Paignton, Teignmouth and most recently Rame, possibly the largest Clevedon contingent of the summer season headed to the Jurassic Coast for a day’s racing.

On the sheltered beach in the shadow of the Cobb our base was established, hiding us from a rather brisk breeze which was only to be found once atop the harbour wall looking out to sea.


Rame Regatta


The popular party regatta of the year took place this weekend and for those who stayed for the evening, I hope you’ve all now recovered!

Rame regatta was a joy to attend. The course was a good length and the sea was calm, giving us good water to glide our oars through.

The men started the racing off with Mens B rowing with power and completing course in 6th place, a good position considering the tough competition.


Paignton Wonder


A later start this week for Paignton’s regatta gave the rowers some time to fuel up on bacon butties and listen to the music that was playing over the tannoys. Not to mention the chance of exploring the high street which was an experience for sure.

Upon the boats being carried ‘literally’ down the beach to the water’s edge, the first row for Clevedon was ladies B. They rowed hard against the unforgiving conditions the sea threw at them and finished seventh out of eleven.


Victory for Clevedon!


Another Clevedon gig club trip took the blue force down to Appledore this weekend, to race against clubs such as Ilfracombe, Bude and Barnstaple amongst many others.

The first race of the day was kicked off with the A crews taking to the water. Men finishing in eighth and women storming back in fourth. It was Clevedon conditions with the calm water favouring their style of rowing, an opportunity they took to show their stamina and technique as they pipped boats to the boys and sped back down on the home straight.


Caradon Regatta


A day that turned from being dark and rainy into a stunning heat filled day… hot in performance and in temperature! :-)

Clevedon had an array of crews attend this regatta with 11 crews taking to the water and racing against the familiar pilot gig clubs.


World Pilot Gig Championships 2016 - Isles of Scilly

This has been Clevedon Gig club's most successful and happiest Scillies yet.

Thanks to the Super Vets and Vets in this ever growing category for kicking off the racing (in choppy water as usual) you rowed your hearts out and produced results to be proud of. Ladies Supers 13th from 25, beating the likes of Barnstaple & Torridge. Men's Supers 16th from 32 & Men's Vets 14th from 36.

A massive well done to Ladies A for a club record and highest placement ever of a Clevedon team. Ranked 30 in the world!! That's bloody brilliant, and won a heat to move up to group C.


End of Year Newsletter 2014


Welcome to the final newsletter of the year and what a year it has been! As 2014 draws to a close we can boast more members, more boats and more trophies than ever before.

It has been an exciting year for the club as a number of grants have allowed us to purchase more equipment which has meant more rowing opportunities for our ever increasing membership. We now have six boats: Watch and Pray, Blackbird, Churngold, Odessa, Ladye Bay and the smaller flash boat. All have been put to good use for training and competing over the racing season, which has been a rewarding one.
