The CPGA (who now owns and runs www.GigRower.co.uk) have agreed that the GigRower team will provide a live stream of the racing. This is only possible thanks to the continued financial support from St Austell Brewery, who sponsor both the event, and CPGA as a registered charity.
We will be covering all the races on the Sunday, from the Quarter Finals to the Big showdown itself bringing the results and races LIVE to your mobile device or computer.
LIVE VIDEO ONBOARD YOUR GIG
Using our WiFi hotspot we can pick up a live feed from your gig. We have a pole which clamps on the seat behind your cox or on your pilot seat, on the top is a bracket for an iPhone. We can use your iPhone or lend you one, all you need to do is install Switcher Studio and then start the camera and we can pick up your feed.
See example here of Caradon A at Dartmouth.
If you are happy to have a camera on your gig please contact us at [email protected]
We once again need your help for our commentators – we want to know what crew you are and your story. To help please follow this Google form to help us really tell the background of your crew and identify you.
