Adam Newton of The Boatyard at Beer has written to say that although he hasn’t yet quite finished his glued clinker 14 ft rowing boat, it has already won the rowing race at the Devon village of Beer’s famous Regatta.

A stretched version of the 12ft Shaldon Regatta, the Boat Building Academy alumnus reports that in winning the race he beat a Fox 14, a rowing skiff designed by BBA instructor Justin Adkin and built by another BBA student, Jim Little.

Adam seems particularly pleased with that achievement, as he says it shows the boat goes well. Congratulations Adam!
