Come and join Exmouth Gig Rowing Club’s regatta on 29th June 2019!
Exmouth Gig Rowing Club we will be hosting their Gig Rowing Regatta with over 300 rowers from 15 clubs.
Take a look at these historic wooden boats with a history over of over 200 years. Cornish Pilot Gigs are based on a design unchanged since 1838 – and racing them has become one of the fastest growing sports in the South West.
Exmouth Gig Rowing Club is part of the Jurassic League, and we will be competing along with clubs from as far as Langstone, Poole, Swanage, Weymouth, Bridport, Lyme, Sidmouth and more. The weather looks promising for the day so come and enjoy watching the excitement!
There will be a real buzz on the beach, opposite the Ocean. We will have tea and coffee on the go, along with a tombola and more. The club will be trying really hard to make this a plastic-free event, so bringing your own mug will be greatly appreciated (but don’t worry if not as we will have spares).
Rowing Gigs is hard work but hugely fun – look out for Exmouth Gig Rowing Club off Exmouth beach or visit our website.
