Gig Races 2 ~ Lyme Regis Regatta by 

Lyme Regis, Dorset

Gig races ~ part of the annual Lyme Regis Regatta week usually held early August but due to bad weather were held at the end of September this year. The gig ‘Peveril’ is from Swanage Sea Rowing Club and the light blue one is ‘Keith Owen’ from Sidmouth Gig Racing Club ~ here they were returning to change crews.
