World Pilot Gig Championships, 2014

I am a keen Cornish Pilot Gig rower and coach. I have just returned from the Isles of Scilly where I have been competing in the World Championships. I was pleased to be asked to write an article for Cornwall Today about the Scillies in the May issue and I hope this gives a flavour of what it is like to row and compete in these wonderful boats.

I row for HMS Raleigh where our mission is to encourage Royal Navy staff and their families to try this great sport. Our crews change each year so we wil not make the higher leagues but I was really delighted with our ladies crew, many have never raced so to be thrown in the World Champonship and be placed in Group K. We were really pleased to see our gig Jupiter on the front page of the Western Morning News on the 5th May. The WMN do so much to promote gig rowng throughout the season.

Port Isaac, who I coach performed really well. The ladies crew were placed 42nd out of 147 in the St Agnes race and then finished 58th. The men also did well, finishing 54th in the St Agnes race and finishing 72nd overall. This is a great result for a small club.

A big thanks to our sponsors,Sharps Brewery and First Great Western who continue to support gig racing with our two clubs.
