Ilfracombe Pilot Gig Club represented North Devon at the Three Rivers Race in Saltash.

The club took both racing boats, Rapparee and Rogue, with four crews to the event hosted by Caradon.

The sun was shining and, with minimal wind, the conditions were perfect for rowing.

The crews had to tackle a seven-mile course with six turns, taking in the Rivers Tamar, Lynher and Tavy.
