Welcome to Bude Pilot Gig Club


We are a friendly and welcoming club that gives people of all abilities the chance to experience Gig rowing and attend social events. We have a range of members; some row for pleasure, some train to improve fitness and others train and race competitively. All members are welcome to take part in races, regardless of their ability or experience. We also have social members who enjoy the land-based activities and assist in the running of the club. These are vital members and are always welcome on race days to support our crews. .

We are the most northerly based Gig Rowing Club in Cornwall and have been rowing in the Cornish seas since 2003.  We are based at the Upper Tamar Lake, which is just outside of Bude. This allows us to row all year round in a safe and scenic environment, even when conditions do not allow rowing at sea. The Lake is used for many activities including sailing, cycling, fishing and walking among others.. Dogs are welcome and there is a park for young children.We row at sea as often as possible, mainly out of Bude and during the Spring and Summer months we attend regattas around the South West of England.

We always welcome new rowers, Juniors, Seniors or Vets of all abilities
