AEP COMPRESSED AIR TECHNOLOGIES has been the proud exclusive sponsor of Langstone Pilot Gig Club and the Jurassic Gig Rowing League since 2018.  This sponsorship has allowed our club to increase its membership whilst promoting rowing opportunities and to promote the sport of Cornish Pilot Gig Rowing both locally and throughout Southern England. Langstone Pilot Gig Club celebrated our 10th Anniversary in January 2023 and was instrumental in forming the Jurassic Regional League four years ago. This league was the country's first competitive Cornish Pilot Gig Rowing League and the sponsorship of the league by AEP has allowed the sport to expand with crews from ten clubs participating in league regattas stretching from Langstone in the East to Exmouth in the West. Each Regatta attracts around four hundred rowers plus supporters with medals and trophy's presented and supplied by AEP Ltd. Langstone Pilot Gig Club are the present Jurassic League champions. This sponsorship opportunity has meant that the club has been able to supply new Club Jackets for  2022 along with two new sets of gig cushions.
