In the beginning......

Brixham Gig Club is a Cornish Pilot Gig Rowing Club situated in the town of Brixham South Devon. The club was founded in 2011 and in 2012 we launched our first training gig named Trojan sponsored by Sports England and followed by our first wooden gig Henry Smardon and has quickly grown to a membership of around 90 rowers of all abilities and ages.Thanks to our sponsors, and a fantastic response from our members pledging money and organising fundraising events, we managed to raise enough to commission a 2nd wooden gig, Pegasus launched in April 2015 built by Brian Pomeroy. However, there is still much to do. The upkeep of three boats, equipment, trailers, insurance costs etc will need the constant drive of our club members, friends, family and the public. If anyone wishes to sponsor the new boat or has any fundraising ideas please don't hesitate to contact the club as all suggestions are welcome. Keep up the good work!
