The Barum Club also sent a contingent of rowers to take part in the Cornish Pilot Gig Association indoor rowing championships on Saturday at St Austell’s Brewery. This was attended by clubs from all over the South West, with almost 200 competitors and more than 20 separate competitions. Notable results for the Barum club were the first and second places won by Alan Pidner and Mickey Fry respectively in the Men’s 60 to 69 category 2000 metre race, and the third place won by the mixed relay 3000 metre race team (Megan Clarke, Jo Walter, Chris Walter and Andy Kearsey). Graeme Clarke also achieved joint tenth in the Men’s 50 to 59 group 2000 metre race.
