Events Completed - 2024

Bembridge Gig Fest - June 8th & 9th


HAMBLE RIVER RAID -11th May 2024

What a great event on a beautiful sunny day!!

A YGRC men's crew rowed an impressive (very tough and hot) race in our beautiful Cornish Pilot Gig 'Spirit' ... crossing the finish line in 47.36 mins (4th out of the 12 Cornish Pilot Gigs - what a brilliant result!).


This superbly organised event included numerous other rowing categories plus SUPs/kayaks - with a rolling start and couple of tight turns along the way!

The YGRC supporters cheered proudly from ashore ... and all enjoyed the great shore-based atmosphere, stalls, food and drink. It was superb to mingle and meet up with other clubs and some great old friends too (a couple of our members just couldn't resist cooling off in the river!!). A FUN TIME was had by all and with a well-deserved swift half and hog roast at the end - perfect!


Crew: John, Geoff, Terry, Jonathan, Clive, Andy. Cox: Bill. Supporters: Helena, Rosanne. Well done all!

17th Feb - Winter Gig Series - Eastney Cruising Ass'n

After a week of soggy wet weather, last Saturday dawned sunny and dry, and a crew of 7 took part in YGRC's first racing event of 2024. The 3 Harbours Winter Gig Series at Langstone Harbour was hosted by Eastney Cruising Association. Rowing in a traditional Cornish Pilot Gig, kindly loaned by the event organisers, the mixed crew competed in both the available races.


Race 1 was just less than 4 miles inside Langstone Harbour, and Race 2, a sprint around the old “mulberry harbour“ wreck, less than 1000m. 4 gigs competed in in the mixed category, including the Yarmouth crew. In total 11 gigs competed in the various categories of the event. "An amazing day, great rowing, lovely company". Great winter rowing!!!
