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.

We've done it - we've bought a building!!    Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club and Watersports Hub is now on Rolle Quay.  We've put a new roof on already but before we can open to the public we still need additional funding to refurbish the inside.    We are a local charity working hard to provide a facility for our town - please help if you can -
