We are very lucky to have 4 gigs, 2 Wooden Racing Gigs and 2 GRP Training Gigs. This has been made possible by constant fundraising and generous donations from local organisations, groups and individuals. We thanks all for their continued support.
NIPPER (Wooden Racing Gig)
Our newest racing gig "Nipper" is CPGA certified and constructed from elm in the traditional manner.
The gig was built during the summer of 2013 by Maurice Hunkin of Fowey who has built many gigs for clubs throughout the southwest.
This gig will allow us to enter more crews in forthcoming race events and regattas,
especially the World Pilot Gig Championships in May.
LADY FREDA (Wooden Racing Gig)
Our racing gig "Lady Freda" is CPGA certified and constructed from elm in the traditional manner.
The gig was built over the winter of 2010 by Brian Pomeroy of Dartmouth who has built a number of gigs for local clubs including Appledore, Dartmouth and Ilfracombe.
PHILLIPA J (GRP Training Gig)
Our Plastic (GRP) training gig, purchased thanks to a grant from Sport England in 2011.
These gigs are referred to lovingly as "Plastic Pigs" due to the way they handle compared with a race gig.
They do cost a lot less and can be used all year without costly and time consuming maintenance.
