LYME Regis Gig Club's men's supervets (over-50s crew) have continued where they left off in the World Championships with another victory, this time in Weymouth.

The Weymouth Regatta was held in fine but breezy conditions off the main beach.

Fourteen clubs took part, from all over Dorset, Devon and beyond.

This regatta is also the first in the Jurassic Coast series where clubs along the coast from Poole to Exmouth compete through the season for the Jurassic Trophy.

The ladies' section began proceedings. Their best result, with a weakened squad, was a fifth in the ladies' C.

Meanwhile, local rivals Bridport ladies A beat the Lyme ladies A easily.

The men’s section fared better, with a strong set of results, not failing to be outside the top three in any of the five men's races.

The highlight was another victory for the men’s supervets, their second of the year already, where they saw off good crews from Teignmouth, Langstone and Weymouth.

This crew have a wealth of rowing experience and good level of fitness.

Another highlight was the performance of the juniors.

Lyme fielded two under-14 crews, the only club at the regatta with such a strong section and were the first and second-placed crews across the line.

A club spokesman said: "A well done goes to juniors Pearl and Seb who both stepped up to race with adult crews on the day.

"Big thanks go to Kerry and Diana for their commitment in developing the club’s youth squad. The youth crews will now be building toward the main under-14s' championships in Hayle in July."

Lyme’s men were the top scoring men’s division on the day, with the club coming in fourth overall.

In the Jurassic Trophy League, they stand third, closely behind Weymouth and Bridport.

Next stop will be two regattas next weekend – Swanage and Salcombe.

The club would like to thank sponsors and supporters in and around Lyme, particularly the Lyme Harbourmaster and his team.
