Mermaid Race for fixed seat boats took place in Cardigan recently. I wanted to take Langstone Cutters' Solent Galley Bembridge but holidays had been booked etc so we couldn't get a crew together.
Anyway, judging by the pictures everyone had a cracking time. The race started at the old bridge at Cardigan Castle, went down the River Teifi, out into Cardigan Bay and round Cardigan Island, returning to the bridge, a total of 11 miles. The winner of the £1,000 prize was Langwm Rowing Club mixed crew in a Celtic Longboat.
