75 gigs are entered to race at Caradon Gig Club’s event on Saturday March 14th. With 57 boats last year, this represents a 31% increase in just 12 months!
Rowers are clearly keen to get out on the water and itching to see how they currently measure up against the competition before the World Championships.

Because of the extra boats attending this year, the organisers have put out a plea for any clubs that are able to drop their gig off on the Friday evening before. They are also asking if clubs can bring their own trollies and untie their oars etc on arrival, away from the slipway.
Don’t forget that crews also need to pay (on the day, before racing) £5 to enter this year’s race.
