Maybe a little late to be helpful, but Gig Club Scheveningen has only three teams this year participating in the WPGC: one superb lady A crew and a mens A + B crew. So, we can lend a our gig to a UK female team. As long as they return the Gig back in good condition after each heat and pay for any necessary repair or replacement costs.
The name of the gig we have available is Hollandsche Nieuwe, see on the boat list of gigrower.co.uk. We hope we can make some UK ladies happy. If there is interest, let them contact me so we can sort things out. And oh, we arrive early on the IOS, on thursday.
Also, they need to buy us some beer after the races 😉
PS: see video on http://www.zeeroeien.nl of our ladies A crew: a race against the *mens* A crew “Royal Forces” of Muiden, who finished 16th overall last year at the WPGC. The video shows a start and race against these gents, and yes, they are top fit, Scheveningen ladies A crew could team up with them. Nice video to watch.
