Update from Paignton Gig Club :
“The event is being held off the beach in front of South Green. We have a marque on South green with all the usual BBQ sarnies etc. In addition to this we have a bar and live band on Saturday evening. As it is open vantage points are anywhere along the beach, and we are hoping to send live video back to the marquee. The start line is just to the right of the Pier as you stand facing the sea, the course then heads out NE towards the edge of the bay to turn the first buoy, it then comes in towards Torquay harbour to turn the second, and then goes towards Corybn head turn the last buoy. The home straight runs parallel to the beach, passing Preston Sands and then Paignton pier to finish just beyond the Shorline restuarant.”
