Scilly’s Women Storm To Win In Veterans Race

wpgc 2013 ladies vets winnersIt was a successful start to the World Pilot Gig Championships for the St Mary’s gig club yesterday.

The crew of the Emma Louise was crowned World Champions in the Ladies Veterans race.

Selena Baxter says they had some worries during the row, with a congested start and her sister Vicki Hitchens breaking an oar pin shortly after.

But Selena says it all came good in the end and she says their cox Ben Johnson deserves a medal for “putting up with a bunch of whingeing old women” for so long.

Ben said he was proud of his crew’s hard work, who had been training together since January.
