Welcome to Langstone Cutters Gig Club

 

Havant Borough Council is excited to be launching its own online Community Lottery to help raise funds for local charities and community groups. 


Tickets will cost £1 with 60p going towards local good causes, compared to just 28p in the pound for the National Lottery. The draw will be weekly with a jackpot of £25,000 for a matching sequence of six numbers, with other prizes including £2,000, £250, £25 or three free tickets. 


Charities and community groups can benefit from the Havant Community Lottery in two ways. Groups from across the borough are able to register as one of our Community Lottery Good Causes. Good Causes will be provided with their own lottery page, and will receive 50p in every pound spent by players choosing to support them. Secondly, a further 10p in every pound will go into the Havant Borough Community Fund, through which local groups can apply for small grants to support their work. The distribution of this fund will be decided by a panel made up of council and community representatives. The remainder of the ticket price goes towards prizes, operating costs and VAT. Havant Borough Council does not take any money from the sale of the Lottery tickets. 


The first draw will take place on Saturday 7 April 2018.

Langstone Cutters 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 year-round in the beautiful waters of Chichester and Langstone Harbours.


We are a community Rowing Club run by volunteers and have around 130 members of all ages from 12 to 77 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 Cutters Gig Club represents Hampshire in gig rowing regattas along the Jurassic coast and into Devon and Cornwall.


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.
