New Sidmouth gig to be unveiled

SIDMOUTH Gig Club members are looking forward to unveiling their brand new wooden boat on Sunday.

The top-secret name of the vessel will also be revealed at a special ceremony at Port Royal from 2.30pm. A wooden gig will enable the group to enter competitions and regattas - and, ultimately, the sport’s world championships. As our photo shows, club members have also celebrated Potburys coming on board to sponsor their rowing clothing.
