Try Gig Rowing for free!

As part of National Watersports Month, Gig Rowing Clubs across the South West are opening their doors on Saturday (10th May) for a national Recruitment Day.

Organised by the Cornish Pilot Gig Association, the Recruitment Day will see dozens of rowing clubs put on free ‘come and try’ sessions – offering newcomers to fixed-seat rowing an opportunity to get out on the water and try one of the oldest forms of our sport.


To find out how you can get involved, contact your nearest Gig Rowing Club:
