Boscastle and Crackington Gig members at a race meetingWe are about to enter our 10th year as a gig club. We pride ourselves on being a welcoming, inclusive club. We have grown both in numbers and in ability over the last year, now we are keen to push on even further. We have spent the winter training hard and maintaining our gigs. We would now like to get some better and bigger oars. We weren't ready for these, either in strength or fitness till now.....

And now we are!

We have ladies and men's teams, juniors, vets and supervets. We have active rowers from 11 to 67. If you would like to support us that would be fantastic. Any contribution you can make would be brilliant.

Whether you can contribute or not you will find a warm welcome from the club. Come on down for a row or a chat sometime!
