Welcome to Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club

We are a community based rowing club that was established in 2010 and is open to anyone who wishes to row pilot gig boats either socially or competitively. We also welcome membership from those who just wish to offer their support as social members without having to worry about rowing. Applications are welcome from adults of all ages and juniors from 11 -15 years.
Please have a look at our website, which has lots of information about the sport of gig rowing. There are details about how you can get involved, as a new member or sponsor and links to other interesting sites related to our sport. Hope to see you on the water soon.

Fullabrook CIC Support new Watersports Centre in Barnstaple

Fullabrook CIC announced on Wednesday that they are happy to support Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club’s application for funds towards the cost of purchasing the warehouse on Rolle Quay adjacent to the Sea Cadets compound, for use as a Watersports Centre.  Fullabrook CIC have pledged £34,000, which, when added to funds already raised, exceeds 25% of the purchase price.

Barnstaple Pilot Club intend to refurbish the building for use as a boathouse and equipment store on the ground floor level, and as a spacious club room on the first floor level.  The latter will be made available to any other organisation needing a meeting place in central Barnstaple as needed.

Planning permission has already been obtained for change of use, and initial drawings prepared by Peregrine Mear’s Architectural practise for refurbishing the building, including proper access for the disabled, new toilet facilities and a spectacular hall on the first floor level.
