    I have a flight booked from Lands End to St Mary’s at 10.05 on Fri 29 April which I would like to swap to a flight on Thursday 28 April if anyone out there wants to change. (Skybus charges a £10 admin fee to swap – presumably for each ticket!).
    Anyone interested please email me at elbryning@hotmail.com.

    Hello lovely gig rowers,

    Welcome back from IOS 2016….

    Just to advise that under the events section Weymouth still shows as invite only. This is not the case. Our regatta is an open event off the beach, with full view racing in the bay off the shore.

    A great warm up ready for Swanages brilliant tribute event.

    Please contact our Club Secretary Kate Goodwin for further info.

    Best wishes and see you in the water

    If you have accommodation on St. Mary’s, can you help? Four clean, well behaved men are looking for somewhere to stay over gig weekend in 2017. B&B or self catering would be great, and we can be flexible about the length of stay, number of people, etc.

    Please leave a reply if you have anything.


  15. Jezz

  19. Tom Larkin

    Hi all
    I’m looking for somewhere to stay Friday-Monday on St Mary’s over gig weekend 2017. If anyone has a spare room, or even just floor space, or they know of anyone who may be able to help, please let me know.
    At this stage, I’d take a camping pitch at the Garrison, but would rather avoid that if at all possible – I’ve had a couple of cold and wet years up there!
    Thanks a lot

  20. David Bray

  21. Josh Smith

    Hi, I’m looking for a accommodation during the Gig Rowing World Championships next year. I’m part of a fairly new club in Dorset and for the last 5 years we’ve been camping. This has been hard for us as the campsite is far away from the beach and not everyone likes camping so each year we struggle to get people from our club to go. So the idea for next year is to find a place that we can have a decent shower and a warm bed without having to worry about if its raining or windy.

    If anyone has anything available whether its for two people or more could they please contact me by email josh1812@hotmail.co.uk

    Many thanks!

  22. David Parkinson

    Looking to find some accommodation for the Gig World championships this year 2018 from Friday 4th to Monday 7th inclusive. Fully house trained and willing to do some cooking! If anyone has something with a roof, then that’s great, but happy to camp as well. I see Garrison campsite on St Marys is saying it’s full, but if anyone has a pitch they want to sell on?
    Please contact david.parkinson@plymouth.ac.uk

  23. Nancy Averis

    Anyone planning on making their own way over on the Thursday / Friday by rib? Wondered if we could go in convoy from Penzance?

  24. Sarah woodcock

    3 lady supervets needed to join 3 experienced Torridge ladies in a Torridge gig for friday night – if you are within reach of Appledore for a bit of pre scillies training that would be even better. Contact Sarah at sarahf2607@gmail.com

  25. Fran Pender

  28. Jon wood

    2 Scillonian return tickets for this years championships
    We were sailing but boat damage means this now not possible
    Ideally Friday to Monday but will look at day either side
    Thanks in advance
    Jon wood(helford)

  29. Stefan Kent

    I am fortunate enough to be taking part in the Helston midday flora day dance which is a real honour on May 8th ( Tuesday) however I must attend the practice etc on Monday night.

    The issue is my return on the Scillonian is the 5pm sailing which is getting in too late.

    I have been on the waiting list for an earlier crossing since February but no success.
    Is there anybody out there or knows someone that can swap their early morning sailing on Monday for the afternoon sailing I already have.

    Please call or text 07534736474
    Many thanks

  30. My lift to Penzance on Friday (4th) has fallen through (taking afternoon ferry: 1:30ish) is anyone passing Wadebridge and has a space for one rower; could easily be outside main gates to Royal Cornwall Show Ground or anywhere convenient to you.

    Mobile: 07852 486197
    or e’mail: francis.crocker@talk21.com

    Many thanks
