The Cornish Pilot Gig Association (CPGA), in collaboration with British Rowing, have launched a new initiative to support new gig clubs. The governing body for this fast growing sport have put together a ‘turn key package’ for coastal community based clubs in the UK that want to start a pilot gig club.
Clubs will be able to apply to the CPGA for the loan of one of two GRP Training Gig boats complete with trailer, oars, cover, coaching and administrative support. The aim of this project is to assist new clubs in getting established and to meet the demand from new members to get on the water. It will also help to grow interest in the club, expand membership and support fund raising to buy their own wooden Cornish Pilot Gig. Once the loan is complete the GRP will be moved onto other clubs looking for support.
