Clevedon Pilot Gig Club, Somerset
Location: Clevedon, Somerset
Gigs: Watch and Pray, Blackbird (racing gigs) Wooden training boat (Odessa) and two GRP boats (Churngold and Ladye Bay)
About: Located 12 miles west of Bristol on the Severn Estuary with one of the world’s largest tidal ranges, Clevedon is one of the newer members of the gig community. Founded in 2009 with help from our big city neighbours, our first boat Watch and Pray was built at the Underfall Yard in Bristol and launched on March 5th 2011.
We purchased our second gig, renamed Blackbird in early 2012 and have since added to the fleet with a training flash boat and a wooden training gig named Odessa, and two fibreglass gigs named Churngold and Ladye Bay.
We are actively looking for people to join us although have been somewhat overwhelmed by the numbers of people wanting to get involved. We would ask anyone interested to get in touch and we will try and get you involved to whatever level you want and that we can accomodate.
Colours: Blue & Yellow
