2017 World Pilot Gig Championships

What a weekend! What a weekend! Adrian's been with the Weymouth Rowing Club, flying the flag for Weymouth at the 2017 World Pilot Gig Championships.

This May Bank Holiday weekend, rowers from across the world were taking part in the Championships on the Isles of Scilly. Amongst the competitors were crews from as far as Holland, Bermuda any the USA. Weymouth Rowing Club did us proud. After a packed 3 days of racing Ladies A, B and C crews ranked 21st, 62nd and 84th, and Men’s A - 55th, podium position for Men’s B winning Group J, and Men’s C finishing a tough but cheerful Scillies with over 140 competing crews.

Adrian commented "I hurt in places I didn't know I had, but the whole experience - great fun and truly exhilarating!" Don’t worry Adrian, you’ll be ship shape for installing our lovely shutters on your return to Dorset! The Shutters & Blinds team are very proud of you! Well done all who took part!
