Accidents and Incidents:

 

From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 22nd August 1900:

 

Hakin Point Regatta.

              The second annual regatta was held at Hakin on Thursday last. The weather, judged simply as a specimen of a summer day, was gloriously fine, but for sailing races the almost complete absence of wind was a serious drawback. .  The chairman, Mr R. Jenkins, and the vice-chairman, Mr P. Hancock, sen., with the hon. secretary, Mr A. J. Lewis, were particularly hard working. The following are the details : ..

              Open Race for four-oared working gigs, not exceeding 22ft. in length.-This event was a most interesting one, owing to the fact that one boat was manned by veterans, and another by young men. The veterans rowed well, but the juveniles who were in the Bugaboo (T. Cann), did not finish. The old men in the Tartar (P. Hancock), finished third. Result 1, Fanny (J. Thomas) 2, Sweater (J. Owens) 3, Tartar (P. Hancock).
