This competition is ran as part of the school games framework for Cornwall, ran by Cornwall Sports Partnership. The gig rowing competition has been running for 7 years now as is held at Mylor Harbour, as part of the Cornwall Watersports Games alongside sailing & kayaking. Schools can enter teams in this competition and their points will count towards the school games series.


  • Schools must have a link with a local gig rowing club, who will need to provide an experienced coxswain for the event
  • This could be experienced gig rowers, or those who have started rowing especially for this event – but must be capable of rowing in multiple races
  • The exact format of racing will depend on the equipment available and number of entries but each crew will race at least twice
  • Racing is in borrowed boats with borrowed equipment, schools do not need to provide any
  • A pupil may row ‘up’ a category, but not down
  • One team per school, per category and each crew must have their own cox as there may be more than one team per school on the water at one time
  • Racing is under CPGA rules
