An Ocean Of Lycra

Plenty of Pilot Gigs turned up for the Swanage Sea Rowing Club's regatta yesterday and this means the beach is awash with colour as well as seaweed.
Each traditionally built gig has a team of six rowers with a cox and, once the complicated issue of launching into the wind is completed, the boats look superb.
The Swanage boats are in the bay most weekends and the rowers are always eager to show you the right end of an oar if you fancy a go.
