Sharp’s Brewery rows in to sponsor the on-the-water photography at the World Pilot Gig Championships, on the Isles of Scilly this weekend.
Gig crews giving their all in the 2016 World Pilot Gig Championships will be able to relive the excitement of the races thanks to Sharp’s Brewery.
Sharp’s Brewery, based in Rock, North Cornwall, is sponsoring the on-the-water photography at the iconic event this weekend. With photographer Anna Willmot taking to the high seas to capture the thrilling races from a speedboat, all participating gig rowers then have the chance to enjoy the drama of the competition and share the spirit of adventure when back on dry land.
James Nicholls, Sharp’s Brewery’s Senior Brand Manager, said: “It is an honour to help to capture the adventure and spirit of the crews at the World Pilot Gig Championships by sponsoring the on-the-water photography.
“At Sharp’s we are passionate about Cornwall and adventure, so we are thrilled to be supporting all the gig teams in one of the world’s most iconic rowing events. And what could be more adventurous that hundreds of crews taking to the sea around the Isles of Scilly.”
James continues, “We supported Cornwall’s Atlantic Buoys on their epic mission last year to row the Atlantic and have recently launched ‘There’s an Adventure Brewing’ for this year, giving people the opportunity to win one of three extraordinary adventures during 2016. We have once again teamed up with inspirational leaders from the worlds of rugby, surfing and cooking to give the public the chance to join them on their next big challenge.
