Boat Rowing to Scilly for the Championships

1619 0

The Island Voyagers crew hope to break the record for rowing around Britain later this year (more details in our GigRower newsletter on Scilly).

But before that attempt they are going to be rowing their boat over to the World Championships.

To help raise money, they’ve sent through this information about an offer they’d like to make to all rowers:

Free Beer from the Island Voyagers!

In preparation for rowing around Britain in July we are rowing out to the World Championships on Thursday leaving Penzance at 4.30am. Follow us over at   We all know what thirsty work rowing is so Sharps Brewery have donated a 5l keg of Doom bar. If you can guess the time it well takes the crew to row over the beer is yours in return for a donation to our chosen charity the Honeypot children’s charity – who provide respite care for young carers.

The crews for the out and return journeys are all gig rowers:

Outward crew

Mel Williams – Flushing & Mylor Gig Club
Rhys Dean – Ilfracombe Gig Club
Stephen Lloyd – Torridge Gig Club
Jez Webb – Ilfracombe Gig Club

Homeward crew
Nigel Charles – Lyme Regis Gig Club
Nathan Offord – Flushing & Mylor Gig Club
Mel Williams – Flushing & Mylor Gig Club
Jez Webb – Ilfracombe Gig Club


To enter: Make a donation on our Just giving page  enter the time you think we will take to make the crossing in the message section.

Head over to our Facebook page @islandvoyagers and let us know your time prediction and that you have entered so we can contact the winner.

That’s it for now but do pop over and say hello on the Island!

See you on the water.

The Island Voyagers
