Success for Roseland Gig Club at the World Championships

2018- What a fantastic weekend. We have had the best weather and perfect racing conditions...until the fog rolled in on Sunday morning ! All races managed to go ahead and we finished the weekend with great results.

Men finished 4th

Ladies 37th

Ladies Vets 19th

158 gigs took part this year so the club performed brilliantly.

 

 

2017 - After months of winter training for some crews (& just a couple of weeks for some) Roseland Gig Club took part in the World Pilot Gig Championships held on the Isles of Scilly over the early May Bank Holiday.  

Roseland Gig Club fielded crews in the Veterans races on Friday night as well as the ‘Open’ racing that took place over Saturday and Sunday. The weather and sea conditions meant for some very tricky rowing conditions, however the club had a very successful weekend.

Once again, our rowing  proved successful  with our men finishing in the top heats at both the Isles of Scilly at the start of the year and the Championships at Newquay to finish the season!  Our ladies fared well too although didn’t reach such heights - but we are busy building our numbers and hope for great things for the coming year.
