Welcome to Langstone Pilot Gig Club

We are really excited to invite all our wonderful members to sign up to our first weekend back out on the water!

Assuming that the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown continues as hoped, we will be offering rowing sessions over all four days of the Easter weekend!

There will be sessions offered every morning from Friday 2nd April through to and including Monday 5th April.  

Please remember that, ideally, you should be available at any time on the mornings you wish to row! 

Our captains try their hardest to accommodate requests if necessary.  These sessions will be open to all our Men, Ladies and Intermediate rowers. As before crews will be mixed and sessions will focus on being back on the water rather than intense training!  

Please add your name to the post on the Forum and we look forward to seeing you back on the water very soon.


Langstone Pilot Gig Club is Hampshire's first Cornish Pilot Gig Club and we have been introducing 

gig rowing and racing to our local community since 2013.  We are based at Northney Marina on 

Hayling Island and we row all year-round in the beautiful waters of Chichester and Langstone Harbours.

We are a community Rowing Club run by volunteers and have around 145 members of all ages 

from 11 to 80 years old, which include all levels of fitness and ability. 


Our membership consists of both recreational rowers and those who wish to race in regattas throughout the summer, and in the World Pilot Gig Championships held in the Isles of Scilly. Langstone Pilot Gig Club represents Hampshire in gig rowing regattas along the Jurassic coast and into Devon and Cornwall. Rowing opportunities extend to mid week and summer evening rows and an exciting list of longer expedition rows which ensure all our members have the chance to enjoy rowing for fitness, fun or friendship.  

As well as the fitness and competitive side, and the joy of being out in the fresh air year-round, our members enjoy the camaraderie of being part of a team, both in and out of the boat.  In addition, we have an excellent programme of social events which are always well attended by our members and their families.

If you would like to give Gig rowing a try we hold Open Rowing Sessions for anyone wishing to try our sport. These sessions are held most Saturday afternoons with qualified coaches and experienced rowers to guide you through. Your first row is free.
