Cob 200 - Pilot Race

Sunday, 14 August 2011

As part of the Cob 200 celebrations in 2011, The Madoc Rowing Club held a race that was a re-enactment of the historic requirement to provide a Pilot to the ships coming into Porthmadog Harbour.
The Pilots and their crews lived in Borth y Gest and on the sight of an incoming ship would 'race' against other Pilots to get to the ship first and thus gain the service fee.
Madoc Yacht Club rowers held a similar 'race' to a ship in the channel and it was very well supported by residents and holiday makers. Celtic Longboats from all over North Wales took part in the event with many participants and members of the public donning period costumes.

Rib Raid

Tuesday, 05 October 2010

Sometimes, I come to the conclusion you just get too many emails. Anyhow, whilst poring through Friday’s delivery of the odd two or three hundred emails in my inbox, I noticed one titled Rib Raid; nothing to do with technical redundancy on servers. When I opened it, I found it was an invitation to go and join the guys at Boatshed, Hamble for a brief soiree around the Solent.

Boatshed North Wales sponsors Abersoch Keelboat week.

Friday, 17 September 2010

Abersoch Keelboat Week has just celebrated it’s 28th year and once again Boatshed North Wales was proud to sponsor the event.
Keelboat Week has been enjoying increased entries in recent years and SCYC enjoys a reputation for excellent race organisation and Cardigan Bay has to be one of the best yachting venues in the UK.
The weather was fairly mixed, but the racing was fantastic with new entrants from the south coast, Scotland and the east coast.
Thursday was sponsors day and Boatshed North Wales chartered a local boat and took the other sponsors around the course to enjoy the racing at close quarters while Andy Topham kept everyone entertained by explaining what was going on.
Off the water SCYC looked great with the sponsors Flags and Banners displayed all week and the social events in the evening were a big success. Boatshed North Wales kicked of the week by sponsoring the opening night with live music to get everyone in the mood.
All in all a brilliant week, we can’t wait for next year.

The Reivers Return

Tuesday, 04 May 2010

After all the training and all the organising the day of the race arrived rather too quickly. We met at St Katherine’s Dock at 06.00 to load the last remaining bits of kit and had a final briefing before rowing back towards Westminster Bridge for the start. The bridge was busy with friends and families and it was a great send off.
The race stated at 09.00 and for the first 2 minutes we were in the lead! No doubt you can guess the rest!
