Budehaven Students Maddie Weston and Chloe Rookes were lucky enough to be taking part in the 2018 World Gig Rowing Championships on the Isles of Scillies last weekend.
This year, more than 165 Gig Squads from as far away as Bermuda and the USA were participating in the World Champs on the 4th May.
The course is 1.8 miles long and the girls have both trained exceptionally hard for the races and were ready for the challenges ahead given that they are two of the youngest girls to be taking part – both girls competed in all 4 races for the Boscastle & Crackington Pilot Gig Club.
Before leaving both girls said they will be happy with whatever results their squad achieves and were proud to be given such an amazing opportunity to row against such a plethora of Squads from across the globe.
