Race Crew Training We train at various times during the week depending on the time of year and if we are attending Regattas around Devon and Cornwall. We train at Upper Tamar Lakes which allows us to train without concern for tide and for the most part weather conditions.

Social rows These are normally held on Wednesday mornings, followed by some tea and cake in the Tamar Cafe, these are open to people of all ages and abilities and are purely for fitness, fun and a chat.

We are an inclusive club of individuals from all types of backgrounds and walks of life brought together by a love of Cornish Gig Rowing. We are very friendly and welcoming of new members and would love to show you how great our sport is. Be it lake rowing for your own fitness or because you want to race in regattas, you are more than welcome to join us.

Be warned though, Gig rowing will seriously improve your health and social life!

If you are new to the club your first 5 rows are £1 each. Please print off and fill in the health form on the link below and bring it with you the first time you come along. If you then decide to join you have the following membership options...

Training costs £1 per session and £2 for every broken pin!

Your membership pays for insurance, lake licence and CPGA (Cornish Pilot Gig Association) membership. The £1 'bums on seats' money goes towards maintenance of the boats and equipment and general running costs. If you attend regattas we ask all rowers to contribute to cover milage costs for towing the gig to the regattas.

Our club kit is encouraged (after all we want to look our best in front of other clubs) but not mandatory when attending regattas. It is on sale here, we recommend at least 1 t-shirt and a hoodie as it can get pretty cold out at sea sometimes.
