Our Gigs

We are very lucky to have 4 gigs, 2 Wooden Racing Gigs and 2 GRP Training Gigs. This has been made possible by constant fundraising and generous donations from local organisations, groups and individuals. We would like to thank all for their continued support.

Phillipa J (GRP Training Gig)

Our Plastic (GRP) training gig, “Phillipa J” purchased thanks to a grant from Sport England in 2011. These gigs are referred to lovingly as "Plastic Pigs" due to the way they handle compared with a race gig.

Barum Bobby(GRP Training Gig)

Barum Bobby is a GRP (Plastic) training gig which was purchased by friends collective in 2012 and was named by an auction for the naming rights. These gigs cost a lot less and can be used all year without costly and time consuming maintenance.
