Welcome to Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club
Off the Row'd Appeal
Barnstaple pilot Gig Club CIO is running a fund-raising campaign to purchase a 19th century warehouse on Rolle's Quay, adjacent to the Sea Cadets Headquarters. If successful the building will be refurbished to provide boat and equipment storage and workshops on the ground floor and in the yard area. The vision is to create a water sports centre and community facility for the people of the Barnstaple area, to foster the regeneration of the run-down Rolle's Quay area, and to encourage leisure and sporting use of the river Taw in Barnstaple. This will also help to restore the maritime heritage that has largely been forgotten in Barnstaple.
