Ilfracombe Pilot Gig Club Regatta
This Saturday will see one of the highlights of Ilfracombe’s summer events calendar – the Ilfracombe Pilot Gig Club Regatta.
We are proud sponsors of Ilfracombe Pilot Gig Club and we’re really excited about the event which takes place just round the corner from our very own hotel here in the heart of North Devon. We’re lucky enough to have been invited to go out on the safety boat to watch the racing in the thick of it, so keep an eye out on our social media pages for updates on the day.
Regatta Racing Starts at 11am
Racing starts at 11am which gives our guests plenty of time to enjoy a hearty breakfast first in our delightful brasserie. Then, take a (hopefully) sunny stroll down to the harbourside where they can watch the racing in action and cheer on all the rowers.
Once the racing is over and all boats are in, the trophy will be presented to the winning team in Ilfracombe Yacht Club.
There will be a BBQ throughout the day as well as a raffle and Ilfracombe Yacht Club will be providing entertainment. The rugby will also be on, so you won’t miss out on England vs Argentina.
Open for Business
Of course although we are excited to attend the Ilfracombe Pilot Gig Club Regatta and support our team, the hotel will still be open for business. The brasserie will be open as usual from 7pm serving delicious, local food for our guests and locals alike.
Don’t forget that The Carlton Club members get 20% off their food bill. So if you’re local and you haven’t already joined, what are you waiting for – especially with Father’s Day coming up this Sunday?
Did You Know…
We’ll leave you with a little bit of trivia for you rowing fans:
The Men’s B trophy has been won by Ilfracombe every year since the club was started!
We look forward to seeing who wins this year – whatever the outcome, it’s set to be a brilliant day out in Ilfracombe.
PS. Don’t forget to book your table for Father’s Day, Sunday 18th June, here.
