I am writing on behalf of Swanage Sea Rowing Club. We have a sailing rig for one of our gigs and would be keen to start making regular use of it. Unfortunately, although we have a number of sailors in the club we have nobody with experience of sailing a gig or even using other lug rigs.
We would appreciate some instruction on setting up and using the sailing rig from one of the clubs that do sail regularly, rather than learning by trial and error.
I would be grateful if you could post this request on the Gig Rower website and/or put us in touch with anyone that could help out – my email address is [email protected]. We could be flexible on the practical arrangements for any training sessions.
