The Helford River Gig Club will transport your boats up to the gig club at Gweek at the end of the race.

We will be providing a bar and Hot food, tea and cakes and prize giving which we hope all will be able to attend after the race.

Overnight camping is available and can be arranged on the day.

Coxes meeting :: 2pm

First boat away approx :: 2.45pm

Please bring a VHF radio

Gigs to be delivered to the top of the hill above the Ferry Boat where you will be directed down to the beach.

Trailers will then need to be taken to Gweek to the Helford River Gig clubhouse. Please ensure gig trailers are clearly marked with boat/club name. Signs will be provided on how to get there.

The plan after the race is for the rowers to head straight to the club to get fed and watered leaving Helford gig club members to bring your gig on its trailer to you at the club house.

Suggest you allow 1 hour for trailer turnround. So would recommend that you do not arrive at the Ferry Boat, Helford Passage much after 12 to 12.30pm.
