Cornish Pilot Gig Racing is a rapidly growing sport that has swept the south coast of England and beyond.
Situated at West Bay on the stunning Jurassic Coast, Bridport Gig Rowing Club (BGRC) was founded in 2007 and has since grown to over 100 members, with three wooden racing gigs, Dagger, Blaez and Brydian and two fibreglass training gigs Bucky Doo and Bathsheba.
We row all year round, with our busiest period being the summer and racing season and can schedule up to 40 boats each week for General and Squad Rowing. Our Squads comprising of Mens, Ladies, Junior and Veteran crews compete at regattas around the South West, racing at the championship events each year at the Isles of Scilly and Newquay. We also compete in the Jurassic League with Bridport winning the League in 2017 and 2018.
We have training programs in place for new rowers wanting to take up the sport and for those rowers wanting to become coxes.
