Juniors hone gig-rowing skills in Cornwall

Junior rowers from across Devon and Cornwall gathered to hone their skills last weekend (April 14/15) at the Western Regional Rowing Council’s junior training camp.

The camp – held at Stithians Watersports Centre, Cornwall – gave the juniors an opportunity to show off their gig rowing skills in a number of different challenges.


Attendees at the camp were also able try out fixed-seat rowing in smaller skiffs provided by Coverack Gig Club, which proved to be a huge hit.

Greenbank Rowing Club’s coastal fours and single sculls ensured that the juniors were also able to have a go at sliding seat rowing for the first time.

The weekend-long camp showed the real potential of junior rowers in the Western Region, with an emphasis on fun, friendly, traditional rowing.

For more information about how you can take up fixed seat rowing, contact your regional Team Leader.
