Welcome to Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club
We are a community based rowing club that is open to anyone who wishes to row Pilot Gig boat either socially or competitively.
We also welcome membership from those who just wish to offer their support as social members without having to worry about actually rowing. Applications are welcome from adults of all ages and juniors from 11 -15 years.

We have over 100 members, two race gigs and two training gigs.
In August 2012 we founded our Junior section which will allow the club to grow in coming years and now has a competent group who regularly train together and compete at many regattas.
During 2015, we had a very successful run at World Pilot Gig Championships in May and competed in many regattas throughout the
South West and
put up a good fight with other local clubs.
We are now starting our winter training ready for next season and members are looking forward to building on their performances
throughout the 2016 season.

Look out for us on the water offering social rowing for those who just want to enjoy the water on the River Taw and more competitive
training for those who want to compete in Regattas.

Please have a look at our website, which has lots of information about this fast growing West Country sport. There are also details about how you can get involved, as a new member or sponsor and links to other interesting sites related to our sport.

                                                                       Hope to see you on the water soon.
