‘The ‘Islander’ was originally built in 1989 by local boat builder Tom Chudleigh as a competition boat for racing against mainland crews. She was Scillies flag ship for many years winning men’s and woman’s World Pilot Gig Championships. She was probably Tom’s finest gig. Last Winter (2008/09) she had an £8,000 refurbishment completed by Peter Martin. She has been used the last few years for junior crews to be able to take part in the adult races and it is with regret we must look to sell her to help keep our older gigs in full racing order.
