Devoran Pilot Gig Club, Cornwall
Location: Devoran, Cornwall
Gigs: Falcon, Fear Not, Faith, Frayed Knot (plastic) and Pandora Express (skiff)
About: Devoran Pilot Gig Club is based at Restronguet Creek, off the Carrick Roads near Falmouth.
Our Club was formed in 1988 and has a membership of around 70. We have three traditionally-built Cornish pilot gigs, Faith, Falcon and Fear Not, plus a ‘plastic’ (fibreglass) training gig ‘Frayed Knot‘ and our skiff, ‘Pandora Express‘.
Our crews compete regularly throughout the intensive racing season organised by the Cornish Pilot Gig Association as well as in local “friendlies”.
In addition to the season’s racing we also regularly take part in extra events and gigging adventures such as rowing the Caledonian Canal in Scotland and competing in the Thames Great River Race.
