World Championships Scillies 2013 Langstone Cutters Gig Club

Langstone Cutters Gig Club competed in the World Championship Pilot Gig racing at the Isles of Scilly in May 2013. The new club formed in January this year as Hampshire's first Cornish Pilot Gig club. The rowers fought bravely to compete against the World's best and did not disgrace themselves. The team selected were the only members in the club at the time of the entry closing date. Everything was brilliant and a life changing experience for all those involved. Many lessons were learnt and we hope to improve on our results next year by achieving a top one hundred slot. Our participation has put our newly formed club firmly on the map and the local press coverage has encouraged people from within the community to take up rowing.

Pilot Gig Racing at Looe Regatta Cornwall June 27th 2009 (3 of 5)

One of several classes contested at Looe Regatta organised by Looe Rowing Club where I was invited by my friend Tamsin Gates. Gig racing is a west country speciality, and the sport is hotly contested with the top races being very competitive indeed. The day was perfect with hot sun and only a light breeze.

Gig racing is a west country speciality, and the sport is hotly contested with the top races being very competitive indeed. The day was perfect with hot sun and only a light breeze. The best action was seen as the crews rounded the buoys, with each scrambling for position by getting as close as possible.
