World Championships, Isles of Scilly 2018

4th-6th May 2018

Blue skies and flat sea – pretty much the best conditions for the World Championships for quite a while!

The first race, from St Agnes, is the longest and the most spectacular – 150 boats in a line, all battling it out to make it back to the harbour. There are oar clashes and crashes aplenty at the start and finish lines. The course is approximately 2 nautical miles long.

Then comes the Nut Rock races, 1.4 nautical miles to the finish line at the harbour. Crews are put into heats of 12 boats and have the chance to move up or down over the next races. The first two go up to the next heat, and the last two move down to the next heat. Bristol crews all did well with none moving down, either maintaining their heat, or moving up.

The first races on Sunday morning were cancelled due to fog. So it was all to play for in the final race on the Sunday afternoon. Full results and crew pictures below:
