Falmouth Pilot Gig Club, Cornwall
Gigs: Governor, Energy, Idas, Fury and Black Rock
About: Falmouth Gig Club enjoys a very special position within the heart of the town, having all year round access to the water from the public slipway, with options to go out to sea for rough weather training, or up the river to Penryn on calmer waters.
The Club strongly believes in providing opportunities to as many people interested in rowing as possible and aims to get as many people out on the water to learn the skills and challenges of rowing. The clubs broad membership is home to a wealth of rowing technical knowledge and experience of differing sea conditions, which has enabled many crews to win championship races.
We have 6 gigs (Governor, Energy, Idas, Fury, The Greenbank and Black Rock), ergos for training on land and use of the Watersports club upstairs. FGC is lucky to benefit from trained coaches, coxn’s and others who are trained in child welfare.
