The Cotehele Gig Rowing Club had an unforgettable time at The World Pilot Gig Championships 2023. We are extremely proud of every team that competed and gave it their all.

What are the World Pilot Gig Championships?

The World Pilot Gig Championships are an annual gig racing event held on the Isles of Scilly, United Kingdom during the May Day bank holiday weekend.

The World Championships were first held in 1990, only attracting a few crews from Cornwall, but in the intervening years the amount of pilot gigs attending has increased with crews coming from all over the South-West and some from even further afield.
